I understand completely what you're going through. I had a 20 gallon for 3 years. Right now I'm cycling my first 75 gallon fully planted tank. I started out thinking about getting a 45 gallon, then decided on a 65 gallon (which I hid in the trunk of my SUV for a few day, I thought hubby would flip). Then I went to the petstore with my husband and we saw a 75 gallon tank. He asked me if that was the tank I was getting and I said "yup, is that a problem?". He laughed and said it was a nice tank...the rest is history. I exchanged the 65 gallon for a 75 gallon the next day. I would have gone for the 90 gallon but there was a big price difference and I was on a "budget". So yes, just do it! Good luck and if you're going to go for a 55 gallon you may as well consider a 75 gallon as the others have mentioned
. The only difference is the width front to back.
