Wow thats over 90 gallons! There are alot of things you can keep with them ,but rember firemouth temperment is not the same for ever firemouth. I keep mind in a 75 gallon planted with rainbows,swordtails,2 keyhole cichlids,and a school of pictus with everthing going very well in my tank so far. I have also seen firemouths kept with other SA cichlids like green terrors,key holes,and convicts in a SA cichlid community. You could do somthing like that if you really love cichlids. Silver dollars go well with firemouths if you don't have plants (never kept them my self).

I would only try the larger characins, and Black Neons do not fit this description. Congos have the size, but this is a very active fish, and if you read the Firemouth profile it mentions how shy these fish are, so boistrous tankmates is not a good match.

Consider Bleeding Heart Tetra, Diamond Tetra, Silver Dollar. Only thinking size here, and level of activity. Check the profiles for other issues; fin nipping might come up, which is why I don't recommend a couple of others. The larger rasbora might also work.
