What Can I Have ?

I have a 55 g with this light http://www.jlaquatics.com/cgi-bin/sh...gno=pc-aga3655
With 2 x Coralife 50/50 55w compact fluorescent bulbs.
I know,I know only 110w
Can I get any corals with this little wattage, and if so what kind ?
I plan on getting the same light strip ( when I get some cash ) so that would be 220w, when i get the second light strip will that open up more doors for me as far as different corals go ?

Thank you for your time !

I wouldn't try anything other than mushrooms at this point.

You should be able to keep some leathers and other softies as well as some lower light tolerant LPS, LPS with moderate lighting needs towards the top of the aquarium.
