Knock yourself out, you could (and should) spend hours researching on there.

The amount of fish you could have is affected by size and thickness of the fish. An eel that is 2' long and a grouper that is 2' long are two completely different stories. If you share your livestock preferences we would be able to help a lot more.

Will you eventually go reef? Puffers definitely are not reef safe. Would not get one in a 55, if I were you. Maybe a Valentini Puffer.
