I would personally get a bigger tank if you can afford it! If so I would get 7-8 red bellies all very small in size so you can watch them grow. Upgrade to a 125 gallon tank in about 5-6 months
If you can't afford it, just throw 3 reds in there like my poor ass

I am thinking of getting 3 cariba's for thee 55g tank, and a small (1") rhom for my 35g. Then when the rhom gets bigger I'll put him in at least a 100g tank, more if I can afford it, and keep the 3 cariba's in the 55. Would that work?

Get a Spilo.....I don't have one, but wish I did. From what I hear they could live in a 30g for life so a 55g would be awesome for a spilo. Plus they're a tight looking fish. If that's not what you like, then go for the 3 caribe.

Trust me on this: if you want Caribas get at least a 70g tank (where you can put up to 4-5), they are less aggressive among each other the more than they are...3 in a 55g might give you some problems (maybe not, depending on your fish temp)...or you can put 3 Reds in your 55g (personally i hate Reds) or a big Rhom...otherwise a Rhom will do fine in a 35g for a while (maybe years depending on size)...good luck...
