If you are looking for a cichlid as a tankmate , I keep them with kribs and firemouths. The number of tiger barbs you want in the 55 is going to affect your options for tankmates. If you keep the school at 7-8 you have alot of options. If you are looking for a big school 12-15 a couple smaller bottom feeders like corydoras would be fine.
