    Raising them with other aggressive cichlids from juvies buys some time but with these guys it is a toss up. I've seem them do well in communities for quite a while before they had to be relocated and I've seen them try to rule the roost when they were this size as well. A 55 will work for a while but he'll out grow it within a year. A 75-90 gallon tank would be better long term. Same length as the 55 but wider (front to back) giving him some extra space. Note: this is just for the RD/Midas, the rest will need their own tank. For them at least a 125.
    Never under estimate the power of stupid people in large numbers.

    If everyone is thinking alike , then no one is thinking.
