Well...48 x 12 footprint can fit three species, although ideally the tank would be the taller 55G.

With a shorter tank I'd try to go smaller and more peaceful than usually recommended for a 55G. Smaller would be 6" at maturity or less. Aulonocara baenschi at 5" would be a smaller peaceful peacock. Lemon Jake at 7" would be a large aggressive peacock. Browse through the profiles and review sizes and temperaments.

Also you want to keep in mind that peacocks crossbreed so if you will have mixed genders you usually only want one peacock species in a tank.
