I noticed that you have the tank in front of a window. You may or may not already know this but if you're going to have the tank there, you should probably be ok with having the blinds closed all the time as direct sunlight is a sure recipe for algae.kasey06 said:Here is a quick picture of my new tank.

This would all depend on if your water has chlorine or chloramine. The chlorine will dissipate out of the water by itself if let to rest for a day or two before a water change. However, chloramine will not and needs something to absorb and entrap it.naegling23 said:.....Some people swear by water conditioners, some swear against them.......
I agree ... I do two filters on anything bigger than 20 gallons. Ie my 38 gallon has an emperor 280 and a penjuin 150 on it. A 75 (4 foot long like your 55) I would run two emperor 400's or an emperor and a canister.psssst
If you are only getting one filter for your aquarium, get the bigger one.
