Sorry for posting so many questions but my local fish store really dont seem to know what they are talking about. I have a texas Ciclid and some sort of shark. I was wanting to get one more Cichlid of some sort. and possibly a few smaller fish. But I dont want another texas cichlid. what other cichlid can i put in there and be safe still. and what is a good smaller fish to go in that would not be in alot of danger. some info on what i have. 55gal. texas cichlid about 5". shark about 7". thanks for everyones help I really dont know who else to ask. :)

Unfortunately Archer is correct the cats going to get a couple of feet long and then some, and the Tex will top out around 10". Way big for a 55. You may want to try and return them or trade them for something smaller growing. Basicly something that tops out around 6" or so .

dwarf africans or american cichlids only get a few inches long, and many will be fine with barbs like tiger barbs.
