You're not leaving much room on the bottom of your tank, where it is needed. What about the Cutteri, Loaches and Tiger Barbs. That would be a well stocked 55.

With Tiger Barbs, you have to be careful because they can be nippy. A gourami should be able to defend itself.

You never want to add gourami to a tank with any sort of aggressive fish. The sedate gourami, with its long pectoral "feelers" and other fins, is a real target of any fish inclined to nip (most barbs, some loaches too). And cichlids and gourami do not mix as they are too similar in their territorality.

That might work (depends on the cichlids' personalities), and you could probably do them, tiger barbs/black ruby barbs (or any 2+ inch barb), and an armored catfish like a bristlenose pleco. (albinos are nice, and there are TONS of nice dwarf plecs.)
Loaches just seem like a bad idea to me, if only because they hide a lot.
