Texas & Firemouth Cichlid Growth

As a general rule forgetting other factors, does the Texas Cichlid grow faster than the Firemouth Cichlid? Just got a Texas and it is bigger than my 2 Firemouths. So far so good but I am worried the Texas will become the tank bully.

Don't know that the Texas cichlid will grow faster, but will surely grow larger.
As for being a bully, only time will tell.
If tank is large enough, the firemouths will be able to stay clear of territory claimed by the Texas. If tank is too small, then the Texas could claim the entire tank.
It's all about territory with most cichlids.

The current boss of the tank is the slightly bigger firemouth, he chases the smaller one around but I from what I've seen is not brave enough to chase the texas. Feed time is dominated by the firemouths and my 2 silver sharks so hopefully they catch up in size to the texas. My tank is 48x18x24 inches.
