what else can i add

atm i have a 55g tank with lots of rocks in a clif like formation (ill upload some pics soon!!) in that tank i have (and all are male from what i can tell) 2 jack dempsey 2 fire mouths 2 convict and one pleco. i was woundering if there are any other type of cichlids i can add with these and what you guys would sugest. all the fish are relitivly small atm about a inch or so each besides the pleco hes about 3 inches. i was thinking maybe a few yellow electric? what do you guys think. ok heres a pic of the tank i know i got the airline hose in front but my ferret decided its a toy so i had to put it where i can watch if she grabs ahold of it lol

I wouldn't add anymore cichlids. You may have issues if any of them pair up. One pair of JD's will fill a 55 gallon. Do you know the sex of any of the fish?

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty
