I have a 55 and I wish I had a 75 instead.

i was going to get a 55 but found a 90 gal on craigslist for $100 with and aquaclear 110, 300 watt heater , bubbler, hood and lights. Also came with a couple big chunks of lava rock. Bigger is better

I have a 55 and I must say having either a 75 or a 90 would be much easier for aquascaping-its hard to fit all my plants and hardscape in the tank and make it work. Also it opens up more options for fish, and more fish as well. Always go as big as you can. Regardless your going to want a bigger tank in the future anyway.

If you have the option, you should measure the space you have then find a tank to fit. Then maybe you could get a 110. Bigger always better. You will regret not having the big tank as soon as you fill the 55.

I have both, I am getting ready to ditch the 55 as an active tank and use it for isolation, or may use as a sump when I build my 300. Definatly go with the 75. It is far easier to keep up, and the fish I have in it are thriving more so than the ones in the 55.
