ThanksChaory said:You can try an African cichlid community tank, a pair of medium size cichlids (8-10 inches), or just do one single large cichlid as a wet pet (oscar, flowerhorn, Midas etc).
A single Oscar will be okay in a 75 gallon. Not a lot of people like the way they look. I used to own a few. About just over a month ago, I got myself a flowerhorn. This guy is very personable. A lot more than an Oscar. Some people doesn't like the head growth (kok), but I think it makes them unique, plus they have awesome colorations, besides the awesome personality.Ilovebarbslol said:Thanks
I'm not a fan of African cichlids
I dislike them chasing each other
I like American cichlids but not no Oscar lol that's 14"
Yes I like it. But it's her too big lol I won't be able to have any tank matesChaory said:A single Oscar will be okay in a 75 gallon. Not a lot of people like the way they look. I used to own a few.

Yeah, an adult Flowerhorn is best kept alone, since they are very aggressive etc.Ilovebarbslol said:Yes I like it. But it's her too big lol I won't be able to have any tank mates
I also like the hump on the flowerhead
Thanks a lot bro. I really want some redhead geostyguy7760 said:75's don't leave a lot of room for geos and other fish. Geos need to be in groups and pretty much stock a tank. I'd also want to make sure to stick with one of the smaller geos. What is in the 75 now?
BalzanI are from uruguay and require cooler water than most geos. But they are the only gymnogeos that do ok without a wintering period. Still I would want to keep their temp in the low 70's if you were going to do a constant temp. 70-71. Unfortunately that's just too cold for many other cichlids. I would think a group of 4-5 in a 75 would look really nice with maybe some buenos aires tetra and peppered corydora. But if you have a threadfin acara I probably wouldn't mix them with these guys as they require warmer water.
Braziliensis gets pretty aggressive and large so I wouldn't do a group of those. SteindachnerI stay small and would fit nicely in a 75 but are more aggressive.
If it were me and I wanted geos in a 75 I'd do a group of balzanI (assuming you can provide the cooler temperature they require year around) and a tank like I suggested above. I think they are a very underrated fish. If not those then I'd go for a trio of red head tapajos and perhaps a pair of smaller cichlids like rainbows or sajicas. That may be a bit overstocked so you might have to have a backup plan if it didn't work. Another small geo (if you can find them) would be the parnaibae geos. You could also consider a group (4-5 perhaps) of one of the satonoperca geo species.
I wouldn't do severums in a 75 with geos. Not enough room.
Thanks.Granamyr said:You could do a group of steindachnerI in a 75 gallon they don't get as big as the others. the BalzaniI would be fine as well but would require cooler water like tyguy mentioned.
I would agree the others on that list get too big for a 75 gallon to have a proper set up.
You could do rams or apistogrammas in that tank as well
Overstock. What if I do WC every week lol I really want my geophagus redhead tapajos but I also want more than 3 varietytyguy7760 said:I wouldn't do a rotkiel with tapajos in a 75. Would work for a while but eventually I think the tank would be overstocked.
If you want a rotkiel, I'd consider a smaller geo like fish like a shoal of guinacaras or biotodomas. Or even a shoal of bolivian rams (mikrogeophagus) for a 75.
Ok thankstyguy7760 said:Water changes won't increase the number of fish you can keep in a tank. It's overstocked from the perspective you'll have 3 large fish in a 75 gallon with a very large fish in the severum. Too much territorial fish in that tank.
That would be nice but I think it's going to "overstock"vikingkirken said:I don't know enough to be sure, but what about an angelfish or festivum with red head tapajos? They're both mid/top-dwelling cichlids, and not as big as severum...
