We were just given a 55G tank for my son, as the fish have such a calming effect on him, especially at night. This site was mentioned by a friend of mine, and I know my son will join as well.
Thank you for welcoming us to this community, and appreciate all the help we can get in doing this right!
55g is a great size tank. If it's the usual 48" tank you will be able to house some really nice fish for your son. 4 foot tanks are suitable for a variety of great schooling fish or a smaller number of slightly larger fish. I look forward to seeing the tank as it progresses, as well as your current tanks!
Enjoy your new tank! Setting up and stocking is half the fun.
