Yea your stand height is a bit short but no harm in leaving your skimmer where it is. Another option u could do is get a 10 gal tank and find a stand the same height or a bit shorter and have a display fuge and plumb the fuge tank to the main display tank and that will give you some diff fish options also ex: if you'd like sea horses then you would be able to plant the tank with macro and a bit of live rock and have a sea horse tank with a purpose since both the fuge and sea horses and pipe fish need lower flows just an idea

ABSOLUTELY great advice. My husband and I would both love to have seahorses, we wanted to do a species tank at first but the 55 wasn't ideal
