Looking For 55 Gallon Tank

Hey fellow Pennsylvanians! I'm from the Pittsburgh area and currently looking for a 55 gallon tank. Wanted some options and advice on how to start as this will be my first 55 gallon tank. I've owned a few fish in my time like a beta and what not, but I'm not to experienced.

Anyways, I wanted to do a 55 gallon planted tank which will include fish. Just wanted some advice on where to start and what to buy. Elmer's and Wet Pets would be the closest fish stores that seems to be popular near me.

Looking forward to your responses!

Elmers has a used equipment sale once a month. You can find complete setups (tank,stand, light) for good prices. Varies month to month. I passed up a 55 gal setup for $159 a while back. Lots of other stuff real cheap.

Thanks for the information trickster. I've been talked into getting a 40 gallon breeder now and that information will still be good to use. I'll give them a call and see what hey can do then as craigs list doesn't look to good today!
