Back on topic: OP, I suggest you divide said tank into 5 equal parts...LENGTHWISE!!!
This will be perfect for many races. You can race bettas, angel fish, cory cats, loaches, heck, you can even race apple snails if it's a Saturday and you have a couple of cases of beer handy.
Just think of all the money you'll make off of your neighborhood buddies. Remember, the house always wins, and this time YOU are the HOUSE!
There, top that, I dare anyone.
OMG - this is hysterical ! I literally laughed out loud. I think you should add hurdles in one of those race lanes ! Another lane, build an obstacle course, and yet another a maze. LOL !!! You could entertain the neighborhood for hours
4 red blood parrots, 1 rainbow shark, one plecostomus, 3 African featherfins (I'd really like only 2 but someone at Petsmart said I needed 3, is this true ?) I'd love to get a few ruby tetras in there somehow.
Comments before I potentially make any huge mistakes ?
MoePaac - with all these suggestions have you decided ?
No, I'm not. I'm a hijacker apparently, with the same issue.
About 3 emails in I posted I was so glad Moepaac put up this thread because I have the same dilemma ! I was starting my process the same time as his request. Sorry MoePaac ! This info. was great helping to decide !
I think we should start a combined post when we get our 75Gs set up to compare !

Well.....what did ya decide....are you keeping it....or selling it.....
The 75gal is a great size to make a soil based natural planted tank and really easy and cheap to up-grade the lighting with shop lights.....cost about $10.00...well here in the US any way.......and even a stand is easy and low cost if it didn't come with one...cinder blocks and 2x8......(I didn't read all the post in the 10 pages)laffs.......
Look in my album and you can see my 75gal soil based natural planted....full of Bettas...both male and female from 6mo to 3 yrs of age....I don't recommend keeping Bettas like this.....this didn't happen over-night...it took a couple of generation to get there.....lol.......
how about one male betta?? =o think about how happy he would be with all that space. probably no one in history has ever done that! and it would be a fun game for you to look for him each day. haha. :)
