I keep firemouths, and though they can behave when younger they can get real nasty as they get older. I've had to keep pairs in 55g's to themselves. When i first got into firemouths i had 6, 3 pairs, and 1 pair killed off the other 2 pairs.
I had a few convicts with them at one point, i had to remove the convicts, they were getting beat up too much. If your going with that size tank, i'd keep it just firemouths, and build around them a nice biotope. Tetras may, or may not do ok in the long run. Pleco should be ok. I wouldnt do any other cichlids of similar size as the tank room just isnt enough.
I'm not into the image, but into the hobby...
