Will This Work?

Ok, so as you know I am in the process of setting up a 55g tank.
I would like to get one JD, 5 silver dollars, and a pictus cat.

Would ONE Emperor 400 work? I have been told that I should have TWO.

thats over filtration anyway, so depending on the amount of stocking u will have it should be fine. with the 4 convicts u mentioned that filter alone would be okay if u kept up with the pwc
