What do I do with 75 gallons?

OK, I just bought a 75 gallon tank with all the fixin's for $50. I have no business getting a 75 gallon, but what a steal!

So besides 100 bettas, what can I do with a 75 gallon? This is out of my league haha! I feel like it would be a good opportunity for cichlids, but I prefer planted tanks. Angels, sure... but I'm not crazy about them. Love discus, but their finicky from what I read.

If I keep this thing, I'll have a large school of corydoras... but what else? What would be a nice show fish?

Anyone have an NPT 75 gallon? How's that work out? haha

MoePacc,

Congratulations! It's always nice to hear someone has gotten a great deal.

If it were me, I would build a massive sorority, with hordes of cory cats and loaches, and a few schools of different species of tetras.

Conversely, I might like to set up a larger tank with fish that average 5" in length.... I like silver dollars, for example, and some of the larger catfish. In a smaller tank, there's not enough room for a school of these fish (10 silver dollars would be 50" of adult fish - leaving 25" - or five more 5" fish).

There's so much you can do! Plan it out carefully, to minimize any costly mistakes.

Good luck and have fun! :D

This makes me jealous! xD I'd fill it full of some kind of cool tropical fish. They're a lot of work but that's what I would do!

I would want to do a school of threadfin rainbowfish. They look really cool and unusual:

I love orphan's idea!

I am trying to upgrade my 2 males to 10 gallons and my female to 5. In the future, hopefully 20-30 all to themselves! Maybe a few tank mates for company, but mainly for them.

If not, Rams! My favorite fish <3
