I'm not sure I would put a pair of any Angel in a 55g. Flames can have attitudes. Putting angels together usually leads to aggression. To me, that is begging for problems.
I tend to go with bigger is better. More room usually equals less stress, which usually equals happier/healthier fish. I feel minimum tank recommendations work for smaller fish. As they grow, that minimum should grow too.
