    IMO, this stock will not work. For a 55gal, 2 cichlids is about all you can have, so pick 2 from the Angels, Appisto, and Rams.
    Pictus cats eat too fast, and you cichlids will slowly starve.
    Gouramis do not get along with other Gouramis so again, pick only one.
    PS--The Paradise fish is almost like a Gouramis too, so no Gouramis and Paradise combo.
    All others are OK, depending on your decision about the Cichlids and Gouramis.

    What would you recommend? I want a variety of colorful fish that are going to be big enough to see from the couch! Any suggestions appreciated!

    Maybe a pair of Angels fishes, 2 Pearl Gouramis, and 2 schools of schooling fishes. Tetras, Rainbows, or Barbs.
