55 Vs 75 G Plan Question

    I just got a 75 g and need to figure out what to do. I currently have a 55, two 45s and three 20gs. The only fish I have to get for my draft plan ore the giant danios and turquoise rainbow fish. This is what I’m thinking:

    75 gallon will be a rainbowfish and cory tank
    Filtration - an aquaclear 110, an aquaclear 70 and 2 double sided sponge filters
    Stocking plan
    14 preacox rainbow
    12 forktail rainbows (not sure if this is ok for them)
    12 panda cories (might get more or add my 5 albino cories)
    3 Adolfo cories (can’t get more)
    Add 6 turquoise rainbow or another big rainbow


    55 gallon will be a danio tank
    Filtration is two aquaclear 70s Plus two double sided sponge filters.
    Stocking plan:
    12 long fin leopard danios
    6 zebra danios
    6 giant danios (have to get)
    9 peppered cories
    9 julli cories (not sure if the are real or false ones)

    This will allow me to get rid of a 45 and two 20 g. The 45 will be a tetra (diamond and candy cane), harlequin rasbora and cory tank.

    I have 12 neon tetras but they were stalking my cories and stealing their food so they are currently in a 20 and will probably stay there. Other fish eat the cory food but they don’t stalk and harass the cories.

    The 75 gallon would be pretty stocked as it is, maybe if you didn't have the adolfo corys you could get a small centerpiece fish. The 55 gallon plan is pretty overstocked, maybe don't do as many danios or corys, try only one species of danio and one species of cory.
