Hello, I am new to this forum and am coming with a question. I am currently setting up a 55 gallon tank and am looking forward to stocking it with fish in the coming weeks. It is set up with a cleaned play sand substrate and will decorate it with two large pieces of mopanI wood along with several small terra cotta pots. My question is whether or not my current idea for stocking is acceptable

4 Firemouth Cichlids
6 Redeye Tetras
2 Bolivian Rams
1 Clown Pleco

Would this be alright in my setup? I could see having so many Firemouths being an issue, as they could become aggressive with each other and the other fish. Any input would be greatly appreciated

The fire mouth cichlids will get aggressive when breeding so you should only get one.

I'm pretty interested in breeding the cichlids :/ Is there any way that I would be able to do this?

You could do just a breeding pair and nothing else.
