What is a good Lumen value for LED strip for a soft coral tank?

LED strip specs:

20000 K
198 LED's 3 feet
100W of light
697 Lumens

Would a couple of these be good for a 55 gallon tank?

thanks

Really what you're going to want to get measured is the PAR rather then lumens. While yes the lumens are bright, the actual photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) could be lower.
