Personally, I wouldn't. Wakin and jikin will grow just as large and bulky as common goldfish. Two in a 55 gal is pretty cramped. They were also bred to be viewed from above and won't look the best in a conventional aquarium. I would save your money and wait until you can afford to put in a pond to get those goldfish.
I know when I get my future house, I'll most certainly have a koi pond. If I'm rich enough I'd love to do an indoor (or otherwise somewhat protected) goldfish pond and put tosakin in it! I just love the way those tails look!
