Salvini Cichlids require a tank of at least 50 gallons with a fine gravel or sand bottom. It does not burrow or destroy plants, which are recommended to use as territories. The Salvini Cichlid should be provided with numerous rocks and roots for use as hiding places. Plenty of room should be left for open swimming. They may be housed with smaller fish that are also more aggressive, but be aware, they are territorial and will bite others.
Taken from Live Aquaria.
So basically if you tank mates are aggressive then you should be ok. Firemouths are certainly aggressive toward each other but toward other species mine never attacked my angels or severum or vice versa.
