It definately sounds like you need more light, or better lighting. You posted 192watt lighting, thats around 3.5 watts of light per gallon on a 55gallon tank. But you didnt post what kind of lighting (NO, VHO, MH, T5, 10k, 14k, 20k, 03). This will make a difference because they all produce different amounts of light intensity.

Well, thats a little low for lighting on a 55, but Mushrooms should do fine under it. How old are the bulbs? I think PCs are only rated for 6-8 months, but i might be wrong. Where in the tank are you placing the corals? How often do you do water changes? Your trates a high for a reef tank, what else is in there (andy fish)? Do you run a skimmer? Are you using carbon at all? Where is your source water comming from? Is it tap water, or do you have an RO/DI unit?
