i think some peoples would argue with me but if you do your research and take it slow you could get a mimic,kole or a yellow.

hmmm

i suppose it would depend on the floor plan..i have one in a 40 breeder as does a friend i have but that has a deeper plan than the standard 55..is it 12 inches on yours?

these are the only 3 id consider. you have to remember alot of space is lost from the live rock, so really your 55 gallon tank is more like 35 gallons. (if not less )
i think a better choice would be a dwarf angel, like a flame or coral beauty over a tang, but thats just me, as its your tank, not mine.
