I have no idea about the cichilds, I'll let someone else tackle that.
Palmas bichir, he will be a little crowded in that tank.
Giant danio, aim for 6.
Elephant nose fish. This is a very difficult fish. I would not get a lone specimen, but 55 gallons is too small for a group. They should be kept in no smaller than groups of 5 in tanks of 75 gallons+.
These fish are famous for never eating in captivity. Many of them starve. If you are truly interested in this fish, I suggest you get a larger tank, and start growing cultures of live foods (daphnia, and various worms), for often times even frozen food isn't good enough for them.
If you wish to go forward with this fish, best of luck, as even experienced keepers have trouble keeping them alive. . .
