I doubt that many cichlids with the possibility of having two breeding pairs would work out in something as small as a 55.

angels are best kept in pairs or in school... which means for the fish to be at it's best the chance, if not likely hood of a pair exists.

The point is mixing 3 cichlids in something as small as a 55 gallon is a bad idea. Especially with one being a pair and their being a possibilty of other pairs.
