The depth of a 55 gallon tank is not a special lighting problem.  I don't 
know how much light you think is appropriate for a "non-show"/"breeder" tank. 
 I grew plants in a 55 gallon tank with 70 watts of light through a cloudy 
glass cover with no added CO2.  I would suggest using more than 70 watts, but 
how much light you need depends on how patient you are and on the selection 
of plants you want to grow.
