A 55G tank for all-male is going to limit you somewhat. Shoot for 8-10 adult fish and avoid anything that matures > 6".

Avoid venustus which needs a 72" tank.

I would skip the clown loaches as well...they like to be in large groups (like six) and grow to be a large fish (13").

What is a red-tail acei? I've seen yellow tail and white tail. Are you sure the fish is an acei? Since they mature > 6" I might skip them for a 55G.

For a 55G with mixed genders think in terms of 3 species and 1m:4f of each. This depends on the specific species of course.
