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.
