That's pretty heavy stocking even for a 55g tank in just three months time. With that load you should get a skimmer. Don't worry to much about the PH just now. Cut the feeding to every other day for the fish and once a week for the corals and that should help out a lot.

For a 55-gallon I think you should definitely get a skimmer. That will make a big difference in keeping Nitrate in check. Look into something like this:
