I lean strongly away from UGF, unless you do a reverse flow UGF. Just don't do the traditional way as muck builds up under the trays.
On a 55gal I would go with a canister, there is really nothing better. I have a rena xp3 on my 55gal and its worked great and is nice and quite like aquariums are suppose to be, this will allow for heavier stocking down the road too.
You don't need a skimmer, I would suggest a powerhead if you go with a HOB. A canister will make more than enough current on its own. As far as light, do you mean like actually blue light, like marine tanks use or just something that will bring out blue colors.....
