Your tank looks great!

Keep an eye on the gouramis, having more than one male in the tank, does not always work out. Gouramis can get pretty nasty and make the smaller ones life miserable.

As far as a 55 gal with stand, I would do a local search on You can sometimes find complete setups for dirt cheap. Very few of my tanks, did I buy new.

Pretty 20gal.

Im still debating what temp I should keep my tank though, also, I think my thermometer is to cheap to give accurate readings.

I dont know how my water heaters works as well! Ahh!
