    I have two albino catfish in with my convict pair in a 20 gallon tank. I actually think I will upgrade their tank to a larger size, but for one, you are probably alright.

    sorry what do you mean albino catfish? do youe mean a pleco or corycats?

    Even if the firemouth COULD fit(which I'm pretty sure it won't) you'd have to be 100% positive it was a female or else you will get cross-bred convict/firemouth fry, and A LOT of them.
