I started with the same setup. I have a very light bioload and about 50lbs of live rock in my aquarium. I have 2 topfin60's. I would suggest removeing ALL the media from the filter and put phosphate remover in one side and carbon in the other. the LR
will take care of biological filtration. Later on you (like me) are going to want to go with a skimmer or/and a refugium. Reef Octopus makes some GREAT HOB
models. the BH-800s is what I am getting. It is TOTALLY quiet. I'm also going to run a HOB
refugium. Size things for a bigger tank. If you like the 55 you will LOVE a 75.
