It depends on the exact fixture you have. Some can and others can't.

That's a great fixture for shallow tanks but I don't know how well it'll work on a 55. On a 40 breeder I'd definitely try it but I just can't say on a 55. You may be ok or you may need two.

A whole lot of people are using Taotronics and reefbuilders LED fixtures. I'd check those out.
