What about making a cichlid aquarium XD I'm a huge cichlid fan so I'm a little biased XD Although at the moment I only have one.

Or you could make a awesome salt water aquarium, you could totally get a fuzzy lion fish.

You could get a big pleco, but only one(And other fish of course, but a lot of plecos are aggressive to others of the same type)

get a oscar? they're fun, you can teach them to eat out of your hand, bad thing is they love live food(feeder goldfish).

divide it a few times, so you can have 2/3 males and then a sorority tank on one side. I don't know if I would do that until you knew if they would go crazy over hormones in the water or something.

*Foams at mouth*

My 10gal cost more! (Was Marineland though so good brand).

Then again... my house is over 100yrs old... a 75gal would probably fall through the floor XD cuz our basement no matter what time of year is always frigid so couldn't keep it warm enough. lol

I'll just have to make due with my 10gal.


Congrats on the STEAL though!

OK, I have the 75 gallon. I don't think I even want a tank this big! What am I going to do with it? Anyway, I may clean it up nice and try and resale it for more. It has a few scratches, but I'll see how it looks after I clean it. Maybe I will just have to make room for it.

Rams, I love rams. I looked at them a while yesterday. They'll definitely be my next fish.

The problem: the tank came with fish... fish I don't want. I was able to sell three of them (jack dempsey, oscar, green something or another) to a local pet store. Received some store credit. However, I now have two pacu's... that I DON'T want and neither does anyone else! They get too big, petstores can't sell them, they don't want them. I'm going to start contacting petstores out of the city.

If anyone wants two pacu's (about 5 inches maybe?) you can have them!

Talk about an overstocked tank! Did you list them on craigslist? My 72 gallon came overstocked and I got rid of all the fish which were various south American cichlids including a huge Oscar. Now it is a betta sorority with 52 female bettas. It is awesome! We also have African cichlid tanks which I love also. You can do just about anything with a 75 gallon!

Edit: those pacus are actually pretty small. They get massive which is why they are hard to sell. Someone would need an extremely large tank.

MoePaac,

Pacus are extremely dangerous!!!

On River Monsters, these fish were introduced to a river in south america (I believe), and they turned from plant eaters to meat eaters, like their cousins, phirana!

I'll spare you what these pacu did to the native men who wandered into the river... very bad news.

If the pacus were fed a meat diet, or kept with fish who were fed a meat diet, you absolutely do not want to handle these fish.

If you can't find anyone who wants them, you may want to have them humanely put down (check with a local fish specialist), or call fish and wildlife services in your area, and have them taken away.

Seriously, these are fish only an expert should handle!!!

Do Not, under any circumstances, release these dangerous fish into the wild!!!

Hah, I don't want these fish! I researched them a bit when I was trying to find out what they were. They are pretty small still, but grow huge. I honestly have no idea what to do with them!

Oh and I wouldn't release them. I know better than to do that.

What about goldfish? You could put maybe 5 fantails or so in there.

If you can't find some place to give em away to then just euthanize them.
