Here are three that I've built. The first two are from 20g high tanks, the last is from a 30g long.

The 30g long is what I have on my current 55g system.

Personally, I would recommend against the 10g.
20g is the minimum i would recommend for a 55g tank.
The 30g would be far better.

I have all the photos for a step-by-step, just never got around to writing it out. Perhaps I can find the time to write one up.
