Ok so i am going to pick up this 75 gallon fish tank on friday let me no what you think. i want input!!!! i am paying 200 for the tank stand and everything in the tank and filter and light etc.. i was thinking of doing a communiall tank but i really dont no then i was thinking about do chiclids? let me no what you think. to add i am doing a sand bottom. and my boss just gave me a coralife light for it. should turn out nice. i want input!![/img]

well its really hard to suggest what to do. i mean everyone has their own tastes.

i say go to your lfs. take a pen and paper and write down all the names of the fish you like. come home look them up. see if their aggressive and how big they get etc. post a list of what you like here also. and that will give you a good start. just think youve got like at least 2 - 3 weeks to figure it out while you cycle the tank. :)

If I were you I would get oscars!! I'm completely in love with these guys and as soon as I'm able to, I'm getting one. They have a great personality, and when you wiggle your fingers over the tank they go insane (Never actually had one try and attack me but I'm sure its possible) A 75 gallon would be perfect for a few of them.

Ew a 150 gallon tank on bricks? How did that go? Sounds scary.

How about dwarf cichlids? they stay relatively small and they are not as aggressive as say african cichlids. With a sand bottom a school of corys would love it. Maybe some cherry barbs too! :)

check my last thread there is a picture of my tank. they were landscaping bricks so they didnt look bad. But it didnt look like a fish tank stand you no. And i hate oscars. i had 5 of them in the 150 gallon. i had to do water changes almost everyweek becasue there so dirty

Weekly water changes are a good idea regardless of the fish.

Lol, they are still great fish. And I do water changes on all my tanks weekly. But yeah I guess if you've already had them then there would be no reason to have them again.

yeah but it is pretty hard to do a water change weekly on a 150 gallon fish tank that is downstairs and i have a canister filter and a empor 400 filter on the tank. and with tank all the fish poo shows up so much so i have to vacum every week 2.
