I just purchased a 55 gallon tank, I currently have a 29 gallon tank with 5 Cichild fish (4 of them are about 4 1/2 inch long)and I am upgrading to this new tank. I need to cycle this one however before I begin the process, can you advise how many filters this tank should have I also need to know how many heaters should I purchase and what name brands are good or which filters and heaters I need to stay away from.
One last question, the strip temperature gauge stuck to the outside of the tank does that work properly? What type of temperature gauge should I have? Thanks
