How many african cichlids can i fit in my 55 gallon tank?

First off, I am new to this website forum and would like to say hello. I do have a tank and some fish. I have a 55 gallon tank with a filter, 2 heaters and a long waterfall aerator. I have 2 African cichlids in there with a pleco that is approximately 8-10 inch. I was wondering what other fish I could maybe put In their or how many more cichlids I could have?

It really depends on what species of A.Cichlids you have now. Some are not compatable with others. If you can tell us your present species we can help you decide what you can get.

Can you get some better pictures? I can't see them very well but the first picture looks like maybe a Ob zebra and the second maybe a red zebra.
