Can I put a German Blue in a tropical community 55 gal tank? If not, are there any south or central that can be mixed in?

Yes as long as the rams are either the only cichlids or they are in the tank with other peaceful small cichlids

I do have a parrot cichlid. The others are molly, plagues, gouramis and Australian rainbows.

Blue Rams do best in very warm water (80+). That is why you often see them in discus tanks. Bolivian Rams are hardier and a better choice.
