Fish stocking in 55 gallon

TIGERssr

hey all!!!
I am going to start my 55 gallon tank. I am planning to add one angel fish, 3 pearl gourami and 5 yoyo loaches.
Can I keep a small schooling fish like zebra danios or cardinal tetras to them as the above mentioned centre piece fish are very slow moving.
1. Angel fish--(1m)
2. Pearl gourami--3(1m+2f)
3. Yoyo laoches--5(2m+3f)
4.--------------------
Should I add a school(12) of zebra danios or increase my gouramis and angelfish number?
or can I add any chichlid to it like electric yellow chichlid etc?

When I kept danios with angelfish, I had constant problems with the danios fin nipping the angels.

I'd put about 30 neon or cardinal tetras in with the other fish...and probably 8-10 of a single variety of cory cats, but you already have the loaches, so you don't really need those. I just like corys.

what about electric yellow cichlid? Can I add it to the gourami and angel fish?
If yes how many should I add?

No, you should not keep electric yellow cichlids with angelfish and gourami. They are aggressive and need hard, alkaline water whereas gouramis and angelfish prefer soft, acidic water. African cichlids are best kept in a dedicated African cichlid tank.
