Hey!! New Fish Hobbyist Here ready to pick some minds!!!

I have been lucky enough to become the owner of a 47.5 Gallon Tank. I have 2 gouramis, an angel fish, 3 Electric Yellow Juvenile cichlids, and a Juvenile Blue Peacoick cichlid. There is peace across the land for now, but if my research is correct possibly my Gouramis are in danger and the Angel i suppose but for now there hasn't even been any conflicts (other than my angel killing 2 other angel fish....the jerk.... love him though) then last but not least I have my toothnose Pleco who ceases to exists lol. I work at a privately owned pet store and my fish "mentor" told me that the 2 first yellows I bought were male, to bring one back and trade it for 2 other female juvenile cichlids, she suggested 2 J-yellows but i grabbed the Peacock because i read their temperaments are around the same and they come from lake malawi, she told me to grab the one cichlid that was cowering in the corner but there isn't any stress so i think I am going to keep them all and buy a 20 Gallon tank to house one if something goes awry. Thank you for taking the time to read my first blog!
