Honestly, I don't know of any saltwater fish that size you can keep in a 55 and I've been doing this for 15 years. I'm not saying there aren't any because quite honestly, "you never know what you don't know" however, with that being said, kind of think of it on the terms of keeping a big dog in a 10 x 4 run and never letting it out to exercise. It's sort of along the same lines. Then throw in a poodle or two, a little house for it to sleep in, and you've just cut that space back. Yes...I know...it really sucks. Trust me, I had to downgrade from a tank 3x's of my 55 now due to the weight. If you find anything really cool then let me know!! Sorry this wasn't much help!
