Yea sorry for the confusion. 7" is a bit of a stretch for firemouths. Males top out at around 6" and females4-5" and that's including their fin trailers. I do agree there are better options but firemouthi are not that bad givin its a 55 gallon and its a solo fish. In my noob days I had a meeki coexist well with an angel, some black skirt tetras, bleeding heart tetras, and cory catfish in a 29. Every cichlid is different which is why I said try it if he really wants a firemouth. Heck I have seen red devils coexist with platties and mollies.
