I can tell you I have a 110 gallon 48" wide tank. I ordered the aquatop light and was super excited, when it got here I was soo disappointed the light felt cheaply made and it barely lit up the top 1/4 of my tank. This is just my experience but thought I'd let you know.

For a 55 Gallon get a 2 bulbed 150 watt each fixture... that will be plenty... I got my fixture on craigslist and I love it. But that will be plenty of light to grow anything

Can't really find a specific website. Just do your research and look on Craigslist for a deal.
