Firemouth Tankmates

    Currently have two Firemouths about 2". I'm removing them from my 40g B and placing into my 29, we're thinking of restocking our 40.

    What would an ideal stock be with these cichlids? I know a lot of people will use GBR's (rams) as a centerpiece, would that be acceptable in a community?

    Large central American tetras will work.sterbai Cory's will also work.Anything that is larger than their mouth and needs the same temp and on will be fine with them.I would not do rams though they will fight with the firemouths.
