Did you go with the Demasoni's? Johanni's can get a little agresive but are not to bad.
Which ones are you looking at geting?

I dunno which im going to get yet, like half the things i hear about the demasoni is the just keep killing each other and no stores around me sell them but i did find one that sells johannis. Also i like with the johannis how the females are yellow and the makes blue, which is like the perfect color combo.

In your 75 gallon i would do 4 males 8 females. There will be some breeding going on tho.
What other kinds of fish are you wanting to put in with them?

Then do 6 males 12 females. I would add them all at once, to keep the agrestion down.

I thought adding that many fish at once is a bad thing and would kill them, overkill on the bioload or whatever its called.

Well Yes it is bad. Now if you do it right you will be ok.
First you add your fish. Then later that night do a 1/3 water change.
Every day for the next week do a 20 to 30% water change.
By adding all of them at once is to Eliminate agrrestion. So that way one dont get picked on.
I do it all the time that way. I wouldnt tell you to do it if i didnt think you couldnt or didnt do your research first. lol You sound like you Realy Have done your research. I wouldnt tell some to do that if they have just ask in there first post.
Also your tank is large with a lot of water, so it would take a lot of new baby fish to start trouble without doing your proper water changes.
I would only feed them 2 times a day a little at a time so that way your ammonia dont spike.

Ive done quite a bit of research lol, and i think thats the problem. I know some about a lot of things instead of a lot on this one thing, that and Im so indecisive Im still not sure exactly what i want to do with this tank.
