I agree, a 55g would be best long-term. It will also get significantly more aggressive than the firemouths, so watch his behavior as he might beat up on them as he gets bigger.

I agree...either a Jack Dempsey or Texas Cichlid...those were the first two I thought of when I saw your pictures. And both get pretty big and aggressive.
