I too have a 55G w/ T5 lighting and don't use a cover at all (I love the open top/water look). The only issue I deal with is heavy evaporation during the winter months. I usually have to add a pitcher of fresh water to the tank each morning (not that big of a deal in my opinion). I have a heavily stocked tank and have not had one fish jump out (despite having no lid on the tank).
