Firemouth/Angel in 50?

I have a 50 gallon tank with 1 angel fish, 6 brass tetras, 6 black skirt tetras and 4 bolivian rams. I'd like to add a firemouth to my tank. Would this be ok and should I get a pair or just 1? My ph is 7 and I have lots of driftwood and rocks. ???

Two pictures of the tank. (I am willing to rearrange to suit firemouths needs)

i know firemouth will eat other small fish. and can have a nasty temper. so its trial and error i guess.

I figured the firemouth was too aggressive, I ended up getting a blue acara and a nicaragua cichlid.
