Fusion MK,

Yeah, the gallonage is odd is it not? 56 gallons instead of 55. 29 gallons instead of 30. Weird. That caught my attention too. Why are manufacturers building tanks in unsual gallons these days?

But to answer your question Fusion MK the 56 gallon TopFin unit was at my local Petsmart.

Yep, any sort of "odd" shaped tank usually runs more than the standard rectangular tanks in the same size range. Although they look nice, the negative aspects of those column tanks are major drawbacks as far as I'm concerned. I'd only consider one if I was completely out of space for other tanks, or if I was really into fish that can make good use of a lot of vertical space without needing much horizontal space. Angelfish are just about the only thing that comes to mind.

Not wild about the tall tanks, mostly because I like to see a lot of fish in my tanks and tall ones don't work great for that.

As for the price, for a new 56 gallon tank with stand included that's a decent price. That said I loathe particle board and thin plywood stands, which this one almost certainly is. Metal or I build my own for me.
