    I have a new 55 gallon tank, with a lot of current from the filter, what fish will do fine with these currents?

    If your tanks is freshwater and you dont want so much current get a bunch of plants... My tank was quite rough but now that the plants have grown in its very calm....

    Just add more water so it has a lower distance to fall down, that will calm it alot.

    Not sure if you meant "discus" or "discuss," pookiepets, but I have several discus in my 55 gal and I would very strongly urge against current. For extra care when they were new I had second overhanging filter in addition to my eheim cannister... even the "waterfall" from that filter stressed them a little.

    As soon as I took it off, they became much braver, and their fins perked up. Discus don't like noise, or current.
