Lighting Help, Please!

Listen guys, Im pulling my hair out here looking for a light setup that will work on a 55 standard dimension tank. Which is pretty much 12" wide. I have found one that gives me about 6 watts per gallon, but no freaking moon LED lights :( has anybody got a setup that I could look at for their 55 gallon. I would like corals, this is for a reef tank

NOVA Extreme 48" T-5 Fixture 4 x 54W by Current USA* - AquaCave
or if your building a hood
48" 4 Lamp Complete T 5 Retrofit Kit by IceCap - AquaCave
+
Lunar Light, BLUE by Current USA - AquaCave
+
Lunar Link Add-On, BLUE by Current USA - AquaCave

but basically any 1 watt LED lights will work as "moonlights" because thats all they really are

im not saying buy from this site or dont buy, or buy these brands or dont buy them. just ideas.

Onefish, I like the Nova and I did see that.. Im worried about the watts of this fixture though, only be 216 for 55 gallons.. think that would be enough. I've found a Current thats 12" across has 6 lamps but no lights.

at the end of the day, the light is most important.. but gosh i would love to have both.
