One canister should be fine for a 55G...shoot for 8X to 10X GPH.

I like the in-line Hydor heaters, not sure what they have for a 55G and check the hose size for a match with your canister.

Or you can keep that HOB on the shelf for emergencies.

If you are in it for the long term, consider a canister like the API Filstar FX4. $200 and 450GPH. No priming and single lever open/close for easy maintenance. Mine are 15 years and still running on the original impellers. I own 5 or 6 of them.

The FX4 is too much for the tank.
