stocking 75 gallon
i am probably getting a 75 gallon tank tonight, and while it will be a few months before i get it set up (have to move first, but will be getting a pretty good deal on the tank), i'm trying to get started on planning what i want to put in it now. my common pleco will be moving over to it, and my swordtails (i also plan to get a few more swords), but i don't know what else to add.
i will have a rather high pH (7.6 or higher, don't know for sure yet) and hard water (also don't know for sure yet, since we have to get a house first), which i know kind of limits what i can get. one thing i am rather interested in is blind cave tetra. they are kind of fun. from what i've found about them, they are very adaptable fish that should be ok with the pleco and swords and my water parameters.
i figure with 75 gallons, i should be able to have schools of a few different fish and maybe a center piece fish, if i can come up with something that won't eat everything else i get.
so what do you people recommend?
