Can i get a firemouth?

Alright soo I was at petsmart and I never really looked into firemouths before, but I looked at the one there and now I want it really bad. I have a 30 gal long tank with 2 filters. The stock is 2 german blue rams 2 keyhole cichlids 5 glow light tetras 2 cories and a bn Pleco. I highly doubt I will be able to add one, but what fish would I need to rehome to be able to get a firemouth?

I have 2 firemouth.. They are fairly aggressive.. The pleco should be fine.. I would imagine tgat if the rest dont get eaten then they eould be picked on greatly. Here are my firemouths

I'm jealous... Well I guess I'll have to wait till all my fish die off. Which I don't want to happen anytime soon so if I were to put them in my tank, would I be able to put anything else in there with them?

Jeez, your convicts are really pretty btw. How much aggression is there between the convicts and firemouths?
