Firemouth Tankmates?

I have a 72 gallon bowfront that i am planning on putting a pair of firemouths in , aswell as a bristlenose pleco. What fish could i put in with these types of fish? I would prefer if the fish had a blueish color on its body.

Convicts would work, blood parrots, Oscars (although tank is not really big enough), Silver Dollars, Green Terrors, Jack Dempseys, Texas Cichlid.

Just a few off the top of my head. If you want a blue coloured fish than the JD is probably the best one. Although it may not work out, JD's can be very aggressive. Might work though if you add a small JD though if the firemouth is of a good size. But might have to have a backup plan if the JD is a nasty, some are fine others aren't.

Severum is one the good mate. Even blue acara will work better.all other earth eater cichlids are compatiable.

jewel cichlids have blue speckles on their body and look really nice when mature
