    In males maingano have long stripes and johanni have more a checker board pattern.  Sometimes the checkers are so close it is hard to tell.  With all the cross breeding it makes it very difficult.

Would a 55 gallon be ok for a male and 2 females?

    It is recommended that a tank be at least 36 inches long so if your 55 gallon does that - you should be good to go. Males can become agressive if not enough swimming around room.

    Yes, however that is about the minimum recommended aquarium size, for those three fish. Watch for aggression.
