Welcome to the forum!!!

If you have the extra cash I would get the 65 wide instead of the 55. Reason is that the 65 is wider and makes for easier aquascaping. I started with a 55 and had a hard time making things fit, it just isn't wide enough LOL.

The key to this hobby in my opnion is good planning. If you plan what you want to keep and the budget you have in mind you will be fine.

If you want to run a sump under the tank it is pretty easy to make up a DIY unit. I ade mine using a 30G breeder. Just get some glass cut and silicone them in place. Easy!

Alot of the other equipment can be found here used locally or on the for sale forums.

I set up my 55g for under $1000 and the setup lasted very long.
Let me know if you need more help just pm me here or call me at 954-801-9815. You will find everyone here is more than willing to help and there is a plethora of information available to you.

Thanks,

Mike
