First, welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum. Glad you joined us.

You have several options with a 55g planted tank. First question is, what are your tap water parameters? Hardness and pH is important, as some fish are particular, some are more adaptable. You can find this out from your water supply folks, many have a website with water data posted.

Once we know the water, we can direct you accordingly. We have fish profiles here, second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top of the page. There are many shoaling fish (meaning they need a group) in the characins and Cyprinids, and there is a catfish category. But the water parameters first.

Byron.

Welcome to the forums. If you have not checked it out yet at the top of the page there is a tab for tropical fish profiles. This is a good place to start researching different type of fish that may work for you. Do you know what the ph and the hardness of your water is? This will help with suggestions of what type of fish you can have. Also is there any type of fish that you are interested in?
