Agreed, we need to figure out what you have before we can make suggestions. Because you can't just assume that since your fish are all getting along that any and all fish you add will get along. We need to find out what the unidentified cichlid is so that you will add a cichlid that will get along with everyone and wont cause problems and have suitable match.

Also it will help to know the other cichlid so we will know if the 55 is even enough for what you have already. IMO, when everything is full grown, 3 firemouths and another cichlid might be too much for a 55. I wouldn't add anythin until you know what else you have and how large it could get.

Your unidentified cichlid is a juvenile Gold Saum, commonly known in fish stores as a "Green Terror". It's too young to tell if it's a male or female, but males easily reach 10" in length and are aggressive. Females may or may not have aggression issues but in general are less aggressive than males, and also grow smaller. If it's a female I think you may be all right keeping her and maybe one firemouth in your 55-gallon tank. If it's a male then he might outgrow that tank and need something a little wider like a 75g tank. If you want to keep him in the 55g, he might get too aggressive to tolerate any tankmates and your firemouths may be in trouble.
