Big fish for 70g?

I have a 70 gal. aquarium and I want to put some big fish in it. Not little ones.

A must have is a Pleco, then I'm looking for one-three (Possibly more) Big fish to add.

So far I've been thinking:
1 Pleco
2 Shubunkin Goldfish.


If anyone has ANY ideas for different types of big fish please let me know!
I've always done little communities, but I wanted to change it up with this aquarium.

You could try about 5 banded rainbows which get 4-6 inches.They prefer to have 3 males to every 2 female and the ph range is 6.6 to 8.0 and all in all very beautiful and peaceful fish.You could also try a festivum cichlid the femals are 6 in. and males are 8 in. the ph range is 6.5 to 8.0 a are one o the peaciful cichlids.

Single Oscar could work in that tank as well.

If you want to put in some goldfish then your selection is pretty limited, being that tropical fish can't be placed (or shouldn't be) with goldfish, due to different water parameters.

Two goldfish and a pleco are going to put you pretty close to your biological limit as these are all high-waste fish. If you remove the goldfish, you might be able to do something else like an oscar or jack dempsey or a school of silver dollars.
