Hey there,

I would stick to canister filters. You are going to want the water turned over several times an hour. I would recommend any of the Marineland, Rena FilStar, or even the Fluval canister filters. They all will do a great job. Just be sure to get one thats rated for about double the capacity of your aquarium. The common power filters that hang on the back dont usually work because of the water level. Although, Marineland makes a hang on the back canister filter, the Magnum 250, which I have used. It works great, and has lasted me several years. For a 55gal, 2 the of Magnum 250's would definitely get the job done. I'd also recommend you buy online. You will find them much cheaper online, then at any pet store. A few places I'd look would be www.thatpetplace.com and www.drsfostersmith.com

I am currently in the US Navy, so unfortunetly I have sold off my collection of herps. But over the years have kept many different species of turtles, geckos, lizards, amphibs, and even fish. Looking forward to getting back in the hobby once im out though!
