are you going to upgrade your filter, with the upgraded filter you can still run the top-fin one as a backup as well as increased filtration

I dont know if your going the not so natural way but I can tell you now that 55 gallon tanks look great with some natural looking gravel the brownish tannish kind and live plants. Maybe if you can get ahold of any driftwood that would make it nice. I like the castle it will provide many hiding spots for fish.


55 Gallon:1 Baby Bristlienose,1 Swordtail, 1 Bala Shark, 2 Common Pleco, 2 Clown Loaches, 2 angel fish,3 (look a like) rasbora Tetra's, 4 Black Skirt Tetra's, 4 Long-finned Gold Zebra Danios, 4 Cardinal Jumbo Tetra's,6 Red Eye Tetra's, 7 neon tetra's
10 Gallon Nano Reef:1 Chocolate Starfish, many snails...Work is in progress...err

I plan on upgrading the filter. I will still keep it running and get a 2nd filter that is better then a Top Fin. Not sure which one yet though.

The advice is great so far everyone. I really apprciate it. Thanks!

good HOB filters are Emperor bio-wheel filters, Penguin bio-wheel filters, and Hagen three way filtration, with the latter being the not so good out of the three and the first being the best. You could go with canister, which is highly recomended but can cost a bit more.
