Hey ya'all I have a 55 gallon with no UGF a HOB top fin 60 filter and am attempting a planted tank. I had a bubble wall to help with surface agitation but removed it as the cory's didn't like it much and I heard they weren't always the best for the plants. I think that I need more filtration in the tank than just the HOB, any suggestions that won't break my husbands wallet ~g~, I'm looking in the under $50 range.

If your going for a well-planted tank, then your fish load would generally be less than a moderately planted tank. Your current filter should be just fine.
