    I wanted my first tank to be done right. I really only plan to keep 1 tank which is in my living room and thought a 75g would be a good size that would allow me to have options with design and big enough to keep alot of fish.

    I am really happy with it and I know over time it will only get better.

    Excellent design, love the driftwood.
    Cool stocking, especially with he cardinals, but just pay close attention to the gourami behavior as they age.

    Looks great. Jealous!

    As for the gourami, they can get territorial and a bit nippy as they get older. Can't see it being an issue, just airing on the side of caution.
    Special thank you to mommy1, KevinVA and slaphppy7 for all the help, it has not been easy!

    I keep 8 gouramis in my tropical pond, one snakeskin, 3 Pearl, 1 moonlight, and 3 three spot gourami. They are a very interesting species to keep together, and surprisingly get along, but not completely. The 3 Pearl gouramis are usually not involved as they are a much less aggressive type of gourami, but the 3 spots and the snakeskin are different. Sometimes the largest 3 spot will be picked on a lot by the others, then it will stop all of the sudden. Moonlights will fight each other if both are male, sadly my other one died to an unknown cause, and trust me, it wasn't because the other one killed it. I won't be purchasing another ever again because the current one would most likely dominate a new moonlight gourami.

    When gouramis get aggressive, you can actually train them, believe it or not. It's not always effective but it has worked for one of my 3 spot gouramis.
    At one point it was extremely aggressive, attacking every other gourami constantly. I put it in a small clear tank inside of the pond to where it couldn't escape(yes, it was at the surface if anybody got scared) for 2 days. When I released it, it stopped aggression and hasn't been that aggressive since.
    I have tried this with the 3 Pearl gouramis in my 55 gallon in the past, and it isn't very effective. It's not like I want to constantly rotate keeping gouramis in a small area just because they are acting natural, so I moved them to the pond, and aggression disappeared completely, most likely due to the size and territory amount.

    Got a little carried away there, but I'm just trying to give you an idea of gourami behavior. Again, there's always the chance that you got lucky and all of them will get along. They can develop aggression, and it could lead to you needing to move them. If you see anything suspicious in their behavior, feel free to PM me about it.

    Well done. You've gotten some really positive feedback from some of the best fish keepers on this forum. You should feel proud.
    It's a beautiful tank and I'd leave it as is for a while. Let the plants and the fish get a little growth on them, let the tank mature, then see if you want to change anything. I'm betting that you won't :o)
    Clearly you did your research and set things up right.
    I would be interested in knowing your entire stock and plant list.
    Also, did you cycle the tank fishless or with fish? What's your water change schedule?
    Curious minds want to know :o)
