I would wait and save up and buy a good light. If you spend $200 on a light or $300 in a few months or a year when you decide you want to get into SPS you will have to buy a new fixture. Figure out what you want to keep and buy a light once

I have lots of coral & don't get concerned until after several days! It's been touched, bagged & moved then glued to a rock in a new home! It takes most coral a day or so to return to "normal". Give it a day or so!

Look at these for a STARTING POINT. Two (2) of these (one per side of your 55), should work out pretty good. However, someone running LEDs could better help you.

It's not a coral it's a bubble tip anemone.
