I'm definitely not a fan of undergravel filters. They always seemed to be more trouble then they're worth. I'd rather use a couple of hang on back (HOB) filters than an undergravel.

Canisters are my top pick, though. I use them in everything from 30 gallons on up. They give great filtration, can be very quiet, and require very little maintenance. I'd recommend a Rena Filstar XP3 for a 55g. I also like Eheim Classics, but they are difficult to assemble since they have very bare instructions so aren't a good choice for a first canister. Plus, they are difficult to get started (primed) without getting water all over the place.
