We also just purchased a canister filter. From what I've gathered from my own research, I'd say yes, that fluval 405 would be just perfect all on its own, for your 55 gal tank. I was looking at the fluvals, and eheims, and magnums, JBJ's... I decided to go with the penn plax cascade 1200. was considering the 1500 model, but didn't want that much water current in our 55 gal planted.

Yeah, a 405 should be fine. I wouldn't go with anything smaller though.
