I received a 55g for Christmas. Had aquariums as a kid growing up but always had plastic plants. I would really like to have an all natural planted aquarium. Can someone provide a good link to read up on what plants are best and also how to "grow" them? I see things on here about CO2 which I know nothing about. Or - maybe the suggestion is to "start small" with a 10 gal and use plastic in the 55g until I know what I'm doing:confused:

I agree.
May I suggest a 4x55 CF lighting fixture from ahsupply.com?
Also... anyone who has ever had an Eheim canister filter (I prefer the classic) will recommend them.
And..a Python water changer makes life so much easier.
IMO, don't even bother with DIY CO2, if you entertained the idea. It's a PITA and your tank is too big anyway. Get a pressurized system.

Good luck!
