Is this a good light?

I'm starting a saltwater aquarium. I just got a light yesterday for my 20 g long and I hope its a good one. Its a 55 watt high output compact fluoresent strip-lite with kelvin lamp. I was confused about what light to get and the guy in the aquarium shop said this should be good for just live rock, live sand, a clown fish, and maybe another small fish. Is it a good light? I'm guess later on if I get into the corals and anemones I will have to go with more watts.

It should be fine for live rock, but the LFS was correct you will need more light for more stuff. The light has no direct effect on the fish or the sand, and is only needed for the rock to allow you to grow coralline algae. who made the light and what is the kelvin rating of the bulb(example 10,000 k or 20,000k).

I know which one you bought, used to sell them myself, but I didn't like them so I stopped. Should work for the rock but don't add any corals.
