lol yet another stocking question for the forum

okay so i have a 55 gallon thats on its way to being cycled so heres what i was thinking:
-1 convict
-2 blue acaras
-1 kissing gourami
-2 bristlenose pleco (or something else for algae suggestions?)
now if i have more room i was thinking in addition to the above:
-1 firemouth
- some kribs or something else i id like a group of smaller fish that maybe/probably wouldn't be eaten by the others
-maybe a bottom dweller or two get some action going on the bottom maybe something that'll eat fry the blue acara might push out cuz i have no space for them

any suggestions would be much appreciated thx all :0)

Were it me, I would go with One Blue acara,One covict,One firemouth, One Bristlenose and perhaps a Rainbow shark. Would decorate with with rock formations and driftwood.
Plants would be Java Fern and Anubia attached to the rocks and wood with thread until the roots attached themselves to the rocks and wood.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
