I desided to go with the Current USA Orbit 48" 4 x 96 Watt Power Compact Strip Light W/4 Lunar Lights which is a total of 384 watts on my 55 gallon which is almost 7 watts a gallon . I think that will be enough light for what I want to keep. For corals and polyps i am looking at:

Bubble Coral
Candy Cane Coral
Daisy/Flowerpot Coral
Plate/Disk Coral
Pipe Organ Coral
Zoanthus Button Polyp
Hairy Mushrooms
Fiji Polyps
Feather Duster
Yellow Toadstool Leather Coral

For fish I am thinking:

1 Royal Gramma
2 Ocellaris Clownfish
1 Yellow Tang
1 Flame Angel
1 Coral Beauty Angel

I realize the angles are risky but they are very pretty and would look awsome. Would this combo work or would it be over stocked?

Thanks Bob

55 Gallon

1 Lawnmower Blenny
1 Bubble tip
2 Tomato Clowns

I would say go get 'em except for the Flame Angel and Coral Beauty. They are both notorious nippers... Sometimes you get one that won't and sometimes you get one that will.. They are a buy with caution fish.... Other than that, I believe you have a good plan... Since that is exactly what I have...
