Ok, well I don't want to any fish to die. Or not be comfortable..

Do you have any idea how many convicts could a 75 handle?

With their habit for breeding a lot, I'd simply stick with 2-3 pairs with several hiding places but if I were you, change your options. How about Lake Tanganyikan cichlids?

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Well get them young and I mean young. Raise them together and they should do fine. I have actually seen an Oscar, a Jack Dempsey, an Arrowana and a Red Terror kept in the same tank together and they never fought for well over 6 years. They were all the same size when they were put in the tank and grew to very different sizes. The arrowana had to be removed at 3 years old because the tank was to small but the fish never fought.

Is kinda like having a Pit Bull, it is not the breed but the owner, do it right and you can raise an Oscar with Guppies.
