I believe you are keeping Oscars (American CIchlid) along with African Cichlids, I guess it would be fine.. but note that Oscars can reach up to 14'' which can crowd you 55gallon fairly easily.

That owner of the chinese restaurant shouldn't be allowed to own fish. Considering a oscar can reach 16" even a 55g is too small to house it for life, never mind a 29g. I would also imagine that if she has that fish crammed into a very small tank that it is probably underfiltered and has a lack of water changes. Does the fish have HITH from the feeders or the poor water?
