    I am going to go over basically the "Common" fish you can stock in a tank from 75g to 150g. I am going to skip fish I would classify as nano fish. I will be categorizing the fish by the type of fish they are. For example a "Needle Nose Gar" will be placed in the "Gar" Category. I will also be using the following format.

    Rather than going by gallons, I would go by tank footprint/dimensions, which is arguably more important than just going by gallons. For example, a 2 foot fish wouldn't do well in a 150 gal tall, as it's only 48" long.

    There are some inaccuracies in your list as well. For example, Tetraodon mbu would not do well in a 55 gal, as they get longer than the tank is wide, by 6" according to your info.

    I'm sorry I am open to corrections. I will also provide tank foot print within the next update.
