possible 75 gallon stock, your thoughts?

2 x Honduran Red Point (Archocentrus sp. Honduran Red Point)
1 x Firemouth (Thorichthys meeki)
10 x Colombian Tetra (Hyphessobrycon columbianus)
1 x Red Hump Eartheater (Geophagus steindachneri)
1 x Pictus Catfish (Pimelodus pictus)
2 x Festivum (Mesonauta festivus)

I know the geo is south american but i have one and love him. Maby a fish or two more. its standard 75 gallon with 110 aquaclear. If need be i will add another filter. 50% water change a week. Is this maxed out?

The Original Poster has post in the correct place and I kindly ask you not to refer them to incorrect sections. The link you posted is not the best place to ask Cichlid related questions. This is why there is a dedicated section for cichlids.

There is one change I would make to that tank and that would be not to add the Festivums. Everything else works and yes in my opinion you would be near maximum stocking.
I would definitely add another filter though, another 110 being ideal.

Nice list of fish there

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)
