That should work for low-medium light plants I believe

Is 50 of that actinic light (blue) or is it a pink light? If it's actinic, it won't do any good for plants because it's for reef tanks. Pink will be fine.

55w over 30 gallon would be in the low medium-light range I'd say. Check outplant geek for plants. You can search by light level.

I don't believe 10k is the propped spectrum for plant growth either I'm afraid. Plants need 5500-7000 spectrum
