I did in fact check out those links. i deeply apologize if i sound really stubborn, but i have trouble seeing a 16 inch bichir inhaling the ctenopoma. Although i have been very wrong before...
If the table of standard tank sizes I use for imperial is correct a 55g is 48 inches wide. I think that's too small for 16 inch of fish.
And, as Cliff said, you have little room for territories. Sooner or later, and likely sooner, this will result in injuries.
Anyway, you got the information, you got some viewpoints, the choice is yours.

Bichir: "60″ x 24″ x 24″ (150x60x60cm) – 540 litres."
Elephantnose: "A 48″ x 18″ x 18″ (120cm x 45cm x 45cm) – 255 litre tank is just about acceptable. You’ll need something bigger if youb want to keep a decent-sized group."
Bushfish: "48″ x 12″ x 12″ (120cm x 30cm x 30cm) – 110 litres."
As long as we are going by what the SF profiles say.. You can clearly see that you do not have nearly enough tank for the first two right?

Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

thank you for those tank sizes, i think i will give my bichir back to my lfs, and just keep a ctenopoma, and maybe some other fish of similar size.
also the congo blackwater setup sounds really interesting, so i will definitely have to give that a try at some point(with a larger tank)
