I would say the 55. But I'll wait for someone else to chime in because I'm not too sure

55 sounds good, the extra room will be good in a lot of ways. There might be occasional mishaps with other inverts, but other than that should be ok

I forgot there is a sea urchin in the 55. It's baseball sized so that should still be okay right?

Super stupid lighting question. I'm pretty sure my corals need more light, so I was looking at par38 bulbs because people say that's what you should use on a budget. This is just a super expensive LED light bulb correct? Do you just put it in a lamp or something? I'm really struggeling with figuring out how this would work. Also is there a difference between a $100 par38 LED bulb from an aquarium supply place and a $35 par38 LED bulb from Home Depot? Sorry I'm dumb.

Yeah all the ones i have seen (including both of mine from rapidled) screw into a standard fitting, i bought 2x $6 clamp desk lamps from walmart to put mine in. And the difference is the led colour I would assume and intensity, read both specs carefully to tell the differences. (rapidled par38 mixed colour and uv is awesome btw.)
