Black Knifefish Tank mates?

I've been wanting to get a Black Ghost Knife fish for a while know. I've got a 55 gallon with a Rainbow Shark in it as all of my other fish died of Ick. So, I saw this fish and I thought 'I've just got to have one.' But, I was just wondering what types of fish I could add with it. I've heard that Gourami are okay with them. What other fish?

Don't you sit and judge me from a high and mighty seat. Don't you shrug it off until you've walked a mile in my bare feet. Cause there are people that you pass by every day with harder cards than yours in life to play.

You will find helpful information in our profile; this fish has very unique requirements, not least of which is a tank 6 feet in length and 2 feet in width when it is grown. Click the shaded name Black Ghost Knifefish.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Well, I know our tank isn't quite 6 foot. We might upgrade sometime soon, though. I'd give our current tank to my Painted Turtle who has far out grown his 10 gallon... I'd love to just stick him in with the shark but then I wouldn't be able to see him every morning when I wake up because he wouldn't be in my room any more...
