Depending on the size of your firemouths, i'm sure they would greedily consume small Crickets, grasshoppers and small worms. Got to make sure you collect the bugs from a pesticide and weedkiller free zone. I regularly feed my new world and African cichlids fresh caught bugs during the warm months. As for your tetras, either need very small critters or very big tetras. My silver dollars race the cichlids to get the bugs. If you vary their diet mixing in the live bugs, growth and color will be enhanced.
