My tetras go near the top of the tank, not sure if you want small tetras in a 55.

Maybe some gouramis, or giant danios ?

One 29 Gallon - Lots of Fish
One 10 Gallon - One White Crayfish
One 15 Gallon - Baby Bullfrogs

The easiest way to tell if your frog is an African Dwarf Frog or an African Clawed Frog is to look at their fore feet (hands). The ADF has webbed fore feet and the ACF does not. If you find that you have an ACF be prepared as it can get quite big, possibly big enough to actually eat some of your fish.

I have read repeatedly that people who have housed this fish giving them nothing but raves. I considered getting one myself when I first set up my tank but I couldn't find any in my area.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Found a tank at my lfs, a 55-60 gallon seamless with a bioball filtration system and some 100+ dollar light for around 350, that I want to get and if I do, Im going to do a community tank and get one again.

The frog is a clawed frog so. Anyways right now I'm looking into the African Butterfly Fish or Giant Danios.
