Upgrading to 75 gallons - suggestions?

Post by yodahorn on Fri Feb 03, 2012 10:08 pm

I will be upgrading from a 36 gal bowfront to a 75 gal. The stock moving over from the smaller tank is 11 rosy barbs, 4 gold barbs, 4 assorted rainbow fish, a female bn plece and some assorted cories. Thoughts of tank mates? What cichlids would be possible.

yeah, I have some gynogeophagus balzani fry about 1.5" that I are part of the reason to set up the 75gal. One they grow out that stock list maybe large enough as is, but wanted thoughts.

I've seen some awesome pics of salvini recently. I'd love a pair. I tradeds a jewel juvie for a salvini juvie on Friday, actually.
