Sup man! Welcome! And ya i got a few suggestions! If ya like fish that are agressive, colorful, and tear things to shreads get cichlids, like african chiclids. If you like schooling fish, get 2 schools of 7 tetras and some centerpiece fish like an angelfish, gourmi, rams, etc. If you like wierd fish like i do, get an eel like a pecock, or tiretrack eel. Soooo many options for a 55
