So I recently got lucky and found a 75 Gallon Aquarium with stand on craigslist for $100. This is a really nice upgrade from my smaller 55 Gallon. Now that I am at this size of aquarium I would like to start getting larger fish and moving away from smaller community fish, but being new to the world or cichlids and larger fish I am not sure exactly what I want or how many I should get. I don't care whether they eat smaller swimmers or not the only thing I would care about is making sure they don't bother my cory's or plecos.
Let me know what you have, what fish have the best personalities, what you suggest would be good for a novice at owning larger fish or what you wish you could get if you had a 75 blank canvas to build on.
A couple of things I have been drawn to so far are Jack Dempsy's and Geophagus Sp.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions and I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
