Welcome to the forum as well :wave:

Without knowing more details about the tank and what is in it / planned on being in it, we cannot really offer suggestions.

What do you plan on keeping in the tank?

What filter do you have now?

Is this freshwater / Marine (Saltwater)?

I have a 75g cichlid tank with a Maxijet 1200 running in circulation mode.

The fish like to "current surf" ie they will intentionally go into the current and get blown across the tank, then swim back against the current.

I would say that it should be ok having it in the tank, although keep an eye on too much sand being blown around. Sand and filters dont match very well, sand can kill a filter quickly.

Something to consider as well, if you have the money for a bigger tank, look at a 75g, same footprint (length) as a 55g only 6" wider. This will give you more choices in your tank. In a 55g 12-15 fish maximum, in a 75g 20 fish or more depending on the species.
