If its for a 55g then you will want one with two halides, not one.

I would not use that light for 2 reasons. One is what Carey said- you'll only have stronger light in the center of the tank, the outer edges will be dark, and two, it's probably not powerful enough anyway.

Corner tanks are curved usually so they have less open area on top, that might be why he used it. Also, as X stated, it might not cut it, do you know if it is a 150 watt halide or a 250 watt one?
