I just kept reading more about it and if you aren't overstocked it would do fine in a 55 as its 8 inches longer than the minimum requirement.
You can either try it in the 55 or get a new 75 for this fish.
The minimum I found on multiple sites are 50 gallons 40" and a 55 gallon 48" should be fine.
Elephant Noses can grow to be 14" long, but they rarely grow bigger than 9" in an aquarium. They can live for 6 to 10 years, and sometimes longer.
The only case where you should go bigger is if he does grow bigger.
