Spendy but I'm tempted to buy one to try they look great.

They are great filters. I got lucky and bought mine along with most of my high-tech gear from some dude on craigslist. $150 for the two of them .

Wonder if one would be sufficient for a 55g.

I think I have the best answer, but don't we all....on a 40 B I use an Eheim 2217'with a pre-filter sponge to keep,the heavy dirt out. On the other end of the tank I use an Aqueon 30 without a prefilter sponge to suck up most of the large detrius. The Eheim holds the bio-media and course blue sponge and the Aqueon is for filtering dirt only. I have to change that out about every 4 days. I use a 100 micron pad in it.
