Remember that Jack Dempseys are aggressive and territorial. If you put a pair in a 55 be sure to provide plenty of hiding spots. It would also probably be best to use a male and a female to avoid a bit of conflict.
Dempseys are also a bit on the messy side. Make sure you provide good filtration and frequent water changes.
