No the spacer is not needed on a 55g. Your glass should be 1/4". Follow the attachment intructions. No closer than 4" from surface to prevent vortex and the pump sucking on air. Also once attached go into Constant Mode (Green) and crank it to 100%. While running align the wet and dry side perfectly until as much noise and vibration is removed as possible. If not aligned properly they will vibrate and shorten part life.
