I can say the the clown loach will need a bigger tank, i've got 5 on a tank about your size and i am in need to relocate them. they really belong to a bigger tank given that they can get over 12" long. Same story wiht the pleco unless it is one of the smaller species

For a 55, i would exchange the clown for 2 more yoyos to start. you may run into issues with 5 angels if 2 of them pair off - something to watch. the species of pleco will determine if it can live in your tank long term.


ON A SIDE NOTE. MODS - another example of why the prefixes should be included in the title of the post

Mixing african and SA cichlids is no good 99% of the time. You're going to have enough on your hands with what you've got.
