There are a lot of fast hardy fish you could use such as barb and danio species.

larger species can be kept as deither fish for those species too. However you might loose one every now and then.

dont think that a 75 gallon tank is big enough for any other big aggressive fish long term!? He's only about two inches now.

A 75 gallon can if correctly decorated be enough for two pairs (species) of cichlids that is equally aggressive to texas cichlids but a larger tanks is of course to be prefered.

I kept my texas in a 145 gallon tank together with adult jaguars, sajica and festae cichlids and that worked well.
