for now get a 5gal bucket w/air stone and separate the agresive one, if you have the square crate light covers if not go to HD or Lowes tomorow and get a 2 x4 sheet cut it to fit and that should help you with your agression issues, any other fish have to be removed from the tank, when there in a breeding situation aggression its always there.

What do you have in the 55 gallon beside the mated pair. Also how many other tanks do you have and what do you have in them. You might be able to temp. move few fish to your other tanks depending on what you have.

Okay, when you say hybrid I'm assuming they are Blood parrots. If so they are not too aggressive because they don't have the mouth to really injure another fish seriously.

Option 1: move you mayan in the 55 gallon with the tank divider so its by it self and can not kill others. and Move the mated acaras in the 20 gallon hopefully its 20 long.

Option 2: Move the Jewels in the 60g with the malawi as they should be able to get along and the hybrids in the 55. Then you can move the mated acaras in the 40 gallon.

these are my suggestion not knowing the size of the fish, personality of the fish and the tank decorations.

Another option is you can remove the male from the breeding pair to reduce/remove the breeding aggression. Then later on set up a tank just for the mated pair.
