Welcome to Cichlid-forum. :)

First I would remove the Jack Dempsey. And ignore the pleco and catfish for now.

Then your stock would be:
1 yellow lab
1 electric blue...what is this?
1 maingano

The important thing would be to get a proper identification of the electric blue. But basically I would try adding fish.

A workable stocking for a 55G would be 3 species with 1m:4f of each. The labs fit a 55G fine. The electric blue...we won't know if it is good for a 55G until you get an ID. The maingano are often aggressive in a 55G, but if you want to keep them you can try stocking 1m:7f of those. The extra females are to help with aggression.

Hope it works out. :thumb:

Johannii and Maingano look very similar...you are sure of the ID of both? I don't think either species would be ideal in a 55G as they are very aggressive. The Johannii are even more aggressive than the Maingano.
