Looks good.
What do you plan on putting in the canister?
Do you already have the skimmer?

Not sure about what to put in the canister yet, and no I haven't bought any of the supplies yet besides the 55Gallon tank and stand, I'm new to the Aquarium community, I've been reading up a few books and forums before I start to do anything, everyone says to research before you buy. Any ideas on what I should put in the canister, and should I be using a different skimmer?
