Dominant fire mouth

I have a cichlid tank with

1 black convict
2 fire mouths
1 young green terror
1 young green Severum

One of my fire mouths seems to rule the tank. Is this strange behavior for a fire mouth? all other fish seem to keep to themselves. The black convict is larger than him, so I am surprised. And no the fire mouth is not breeding with the other.

Its just cichlid behavior. They arent usually agressive but sometimes their personality make them what they are. Theres usually always a bully in a cichlid tank, so it probably is him. Just make sure he isnt over stressing your fish. Personally i would only be worried for the severum but they are robust fish. They should all be able to hold their own especially the convict.
