I have a question about lighting? I have a 55 gallon tank and it came with a 48" dual ballast with T5 bulbs. One is a actininc and the other is a 10000k, is this enough light if i want to have fish and coral? And also what do you mean by WPG and do i have enough?

thats around 100 watts of light if you have two bulbs, i think thats ok for FO or FOWLR but no good for corals or anything

The only corals I'd try are mushrooms and various softies. Ask the shops for critters that need to be hand fed more then photo synthetic as you really don't have much intensity at all.
