What lighting should I get for my 55g marine tank

So I currently have a 55 gallon marine tank with 56 pounds of live rock. I do not have a sump and I am using twin hang on filters, one is a top fin 60 and the other is a marineland emperor 400 bio wheel. I flirting with the idea of putting in a few soft corals in the tank. Nothing crazy just something to add some color. I assume I will need to update my lighting, but I am not sure what I should get. I am very new at this, so if someone could point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it. The dimensions on my tank are 48"L X 12"W X 18"H

55 gallon fish only saltwater tank: firefish (Corky), cleaner shrimp (Joch' le bob), and more on the way! / 15 gallon freshwater: 5 fancy guppies and 7 phantom tetras / 1 gallon betta tank: Mr. Sparkles (she named him)

Nevermind, just purchased a fixture with 4 54 WATT T5's and 4 LED lunar lights.
