Question Enough flow? Lighting overhang?

So, my new 55gal is 48 long, 13 wide, and 20.5 tall. I'm running 2 Koralia 750s and a 550 in my 36 bowfront... I've read others not running as much GPH in their 55 as I do in my 36... would this be enough flow for my 55?

Also, with my tank only being 13 wide...I want to keep SPS in my tank. I was looking at a 6 bulb unit from aquaticlife, but it is a tad over 15 with the legs on it. How badly would this affect my corals getting light?
