Too late to pair firemouth?

149 0
Hey all. I have a ~5" male diremouth in a community planted 55 gallon. Also contains 6 tiger barbs (they're a bit old so they're thinning out) 6 australian rainbowfish, and 1 weather loach i plan to separate after a move. I want to get a female FM but my LFS only has small ones (2-3") Would he still pair with a female of that size or will I need to try buying a larger one from a private seller? Thank you.
