75 gallon stocking.
Allright I am thinking of doing a community tank or a single fishxD. For a community tank I want to do a large school of corys and possibly a pair of angels. What else should I put in there.
Also the temperature is 78. PH is around 7.6-7.8. Has anyone had them in my kind of water. For the life of me I have tried lowering the ph but to no avail. Its my tap water but an RO unit is out of the question till I get a new place.
For a single fish I would do a large cichlid most likely a flowerhorn again. But I am leaning towards a community tank this time around.
For the community tank what sort of problems will I run into the filtration is a fluval 404 and fluval 405.
Might do some plants I have grown in that tank with my flowerhorn was Duckweed woooxD Hornwort and java moss might try some swords. and anubias.

What about the angels. I am kinda afraid to get em because it says 6.9 ish PH and mines 7.6... So I dunno if thats horrible or what. I was thinking a large school of rummynose they did well in my 20gallon. theres already 2 bns in that tank:)"Great spirits have often encountered violent opposition from weak minds." -Albert Einstein

A single angelfish would be nice. You shouldn't have any issues with a pH of 7.6 with an angelfish. When you get multiple angelfish you run the risk of 2 of them pairing up and breeding which can cause aggression issues.55g- blood parrots, hatchetfish, SAE, bristlenose plecos

THAT'S WHAT I WANT! A 75g community tank...
Dunno what I'd do...maybe a school of Celestial Pearl Danios...at least that's what I'd like to try in my 25 g...
But yeah...I'd get corys again!
Angels would be fine.
I'm liking that 'understocked' look too...I think 2 large angels and a school of corys won`t look like too little...55 g Goldfish Tank - 5 Fancies, 2 Dojos

A pair of discus, a school of tetras, and some cory cats in a planted tank.Think with logic and rationality more than emotion. Act with moderation and consideration. Contemplate ideals and realistic goals and weigh out possibilities and options. Temper not with personal delusions or false hope but learn to accept and move on.

You could get mollies! One of each colour! I like the black ones! The black ones have different scales from the others. You could get some glass/ghost catfish. You could easily tell if the glass catfish are sick. Most illnesses cause discolouration in fish. I'm not sure if the discolouration shows up on clear fish. Maybe some otocinclus? Try aqualandpetsplus.com for a list of fish. You can get a basic idea of tank temp and tankmates for the fish there. It has a list of fish commonly available. Don't trust them word for word, though.. .·´¯`·.. ><((((º>`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸.·´¯`·...¸><((((º>

I'm going through the same issues with my 75G. There are a LOT of options. I'm looking for low maintenance, and will probably go with barbs, but if you have the time I would TOTALLY go with discus. They look awesome and are one of the most stellar freshwater fish. I recently saw a 75G discus tank that was accented by german blue veiltail rams that was stunning!
