For a 55 with the AC, I would go with the 2215. It is a great filter with plenty of room for media, and is rated for a 75 which is good for piranhas and also if you ever decide to upgrade.

Good Info!!

When I used to have a 55 gal, I used an UGF combined with a Magnum 350. I dont recommend UGF (my opinion) but upgrade to an AC 400 and a canister would be more then sufficient. If you can buy the best from your dollar, then get the Eheim. If on a budget, get the Magnum 350

Big Als Online has EHEIM 2028 PROFESSIONEL II FILTER for $199 With media, I think this is a good deal.

My favorite is EHEIM WET/DRY FILTER 2229- PLUS KIT for $219 with media, which is a great deal considering the cost of the media itself. I have 3 of these filters from Big Als.

Would a Eheim 2028 be ok for my tank? I found one on ebay for $169. It cost about the same as the Eheim 2026 online.

The Eheim 2028 would be fine and sufficient in your tank, especially if your planning to go and upgrade anytime soon in the future. For extra more $$ get yourself a Eheim Pro II, even way better investment.
