72 gallon has a lot of space so I bet you have a variety of options.

I will check water parameters tonight when I get home. I'm hoping for lots of options with the size of tank also.

You said you were moving. You are going to move first and then restock right?

No I'm not moving. I'm going to restock the tank when I find a home for the silver dollar.

Welcome, with that size tank you have many options. I finally had to stop taking in others "unwanted " fish also, I feel bad but I wont risk losing the ones I have, and I wish there was a law against carnivals and fairs giving away pets as prizes, I cant tell you how many goldfish I've ended up with over the years

You probably are not going to believe this but I don't have the kit I need to check my water parameters.
I use to raise angel fish and I had 2 pairs. I had lots of tanks 2 30's, a 55, a 10 and a 5. I got tired of raising the fish and sold the pairs and the tanks. I ended up having the 55 and the 72 and 18 gal I forgot. Someone at work wanted to buy the 55 so I sold it and gave them boxes of supplies I had and my water kits were in the box. I will have to get new ones. I was going to sell my last 2 tanks also and then just really could not part with the 72. I was just ill about the silver dollars killing my other fish. Now that I have just one left. I suddenly got the urge to start tank over. I plan to go Saturday and get a school of tetras and will get my water kit then.

API Master Test Kit. (Make sure it has an expiration date on it, old pet stores sometimes have them on shelves for years and they aren't as accurate. Sometimes they restock returned expired stuff...depending on how horrifying your petstore is.)

Ranges from $28 to $35 depending on where you go. You can get it for like $20-$25 off of amazon.com.
