New Tank basic questions.

I currently have a 29 gal thats has been established for about 9 months i am in cycling stages of a 55 gal and had some questions on recomended lighting. I currently have a 2x65 50/50 corallife on 29gal and 1x96 watt 50/50 and the extra balast to power 2x96. For now i will have the 2x65 and 1x96 watt. will that ligting be sufficent to house soft corals? i estimated about 4.2 watts per gallon. What do you suggest?

fyi- the 29gal and 55 gal have same length

yes, that should be fine for soft corals and some LPS as well.
