already overstocked. firemouths wont do fantastic in that size tank long term. consider something with a bit more length. maybe a 55 or so.

If you have two males then you are going to have issues when they hit about 2.5 to 3 inches and will need to remove one, firemouths seem to be either very mellow or very aggressive, at least that is my experience with them. If you want to keep just one you could add some small dithers and I think you would be fine, some zebra or leopard danios would work, I have kept them with firemouths quite a bit and they seem to pay no attention to them at all.
