Thanks. I was leaning towards that one because it came as a kit.
I'm going to order it today and see if they carry the stand.

Where are ordering from?

Stands for a 55 gal should be easy to come across - Kjiji, FB marketplace, big store vendors, or a simple DIY stand is fairly easy to build.

Paulmacs, they are a branch off of petvalu. Petsmart only sells the tank/stand combo (tall tanks only).
The person helping me couldn't find a stand. Kijiji only has smaller or larger tanks with the stand.
I don't want to resort to building but I can dust off my old high school carpentry skills.

Last question. While waiting at the store I made the mistake of looking at the bettas and falling in love. I didn't get him (he was ice blue and had a cross on his head) but it did bring a question. Can a male betta be kept with mollies in a 55?
If not what are some other good fish that won't cause trouble?

Hello, it depends on temperment of fish. If I'm putting a betta in community tank I put him in a breeding net inside the tank he's going in for a couple wks. This way he gets used to activity of tankmates & they get used to him.
He'll flare for a while but eventually settle down. When you decide to release him leave net in tank hanging by one side in water so he has a safe place to retreat to. When you feel its safe for him & others you can pull net.
Be warned things can go sideways quickly. I put a baby fantail goldie in tank while setting its tank up & in a few hrs the betta decided he didn't like her & ripped tail fin apart. So be prepared to move betta if needed. Hope this helps!
