Would this lighting system (http://www.jlaquatics.com/product/sl-t5tl4804/Sunlight+Supply+48%22+Tek+Light+T5+Fixture+-+4-Bulb%2C+4+x+54W.html) be good enough for a 55g with muchrooms, zoas, and a few LPS like frogspawn and torchcoral?
Is it sufficient? Too little? Too much?

I successfully kept sps and a blue carpet(gigantea) anemone in my 75 gallon with 4 54w T5's for months because I was simply too lazy to install the last set of bulbs. That fixture is perfect for a 55.

How did the lighting unit itself do? Glare, lighting, problems, etc?
