I would leave the con out unless it is female. Honestly I would get 6 Firemouths and grow them out until a pair is formed then trade the 4 spares into the LFS and consider picking up a female con and an acara later on. Be careful buying Synos many of them grow quite large, and honestly I would stick to more of a SA catfish considering the requirements of your tetras.20G Low-Tech|50G High-Tech Planted|50G A.crassipinnis Tank|56G Column Low-Tech Planted Goldfish Tank

And be aware the firemouths start spawning very early and spawn constantly. I had to cull 400 of them because I simply could not find a way to get rid of them all.
No convict and I would also not add tetra's. Perhaps some giant danio's.

Another idea i thought of was as pair of blue acara FM and two other cichlids . I mainly want each fish to have its on identity so like a can single them out thats what im going for and variety.110g All Male Peacock/Hap Tank
