Lots of variables with your possible skimming issues,...water height ,air,..bio load, etc,...but a skimmer rated for a 100 gal
setup should be great for a 55 gal
tank,.im sure you'll get it dialed in to your system, just small adjustments at a time and a little patience ...if you go up a handful of post I answer your question about why I was thinking about another skimmer,...but in a nutshell,..I just wanted to experiment a little and try something different ,.nothing ventured, nothing gained! .... .I haven't pressed any buttons yet ,just thinking out loud ,
