I have a 29 gal
that has been up for a little over a month.
I am just trying to keep my cleaning crew and chromis alive for awhile before I invest in anything larger.
The calculators helped me decide what type of fish to get
The size of the fish listed is full grown size not the size right now. (advisors please correct me if I am wrong)
I value the opinion of all poster who have "Been there, Done that"
(Lando, Brenden, Hara, Fluff and others) for they know far more than I ever will.
I love to go thru the LFS
and see all the great looking fish they have.
But from reading here I know that "Nothing in this hobby happens fast" (I think I have heard this from every advisor)
I don't know much about 55gal tank but others here do.
Thus ends my rant, Good luck
