    What size tank should I upgrade to?

    I would do a 60. 55s are way too thin.

    Depends in what fish you want to keep in there and how much room you have in general, the bigger the better. However when I do any upgrades, I stalk Craigslist and just hold out until I find a good tank there.

    I wouldn't do a 55g. I have one sitting here and I'm having a hard time figuring out what I want to do with it. 55g are generally beginner tanks and generally most seen on 2nd hand sites like Craigslist. 55g lack depth thus limits on types of fish you want.

    Depending on what you want you can go bigger, a 75 gallon will provide the depth needed to get certain fish but it's no longer than the standard 55g. If you think 75g is too much get a 40b which is just as deep as a 75g but just 35g less.

    Just get a tank that you will be happy with in the long run. The bigger the tank the more doors open for you.

    Jump to a 75. You will be much happier. I had a brand new 55 that I never setup because I didn't like how narrow it was. Got rid of it and got a 75. Just the extra 5" in depth makes a big difference.
