I would still recommend a 405 for a 50g.

I wish...

I got it for $137 at Aquarium Adventures.

I also got:
40 # of black moon Sand
20# of Cichlid mix Sand

35# of Black gravel
5# of rainbow gravel

The gravel is for my 50g Community, the 55g will get the sand.

I am a little light on the gravel, I need to see where the level is when in the tank. I still need a second heater and will be cleaning up some decorations I am not currently using for the 50g tank (that one is first)

Now I need to build a stand for it

I've got buckets of black gravel, your welcome to pick it up for free if you'd like.

That's a great deal for the filter though, I'm in their discount club since most stuff there is a little pricey.

All their substrate was 50% off.. Thanks for the offer on the gravel, I will let you know if I need any.. Total was $200 for all

the gravel and sand seemed to be cheaper then ordering it online.

and yes, outside of the sale, their stuff did seem pricey

Suggestions on a heater for the 55g? the heater I got with the other 405 will go in the 50g.. so I need a heater for the cichlid tank

I'd go with another Eheim Jäger...250w would do it.

the one I got I looked at again (that came in the deal) and it is a Hydor Theo 300w.. States 53-some larger Gal

I think it will be fine for my 50 gal, might be a bit big though
