Do you have any suggestions to go with this stock? A centerpiece fish, not being a gourami or angel, and temp considered?

8 Denison
6 Bolivians
10 Corys

Would be willing to change numbers to fit centerpiece.

A pair of Rotkiel Severums would be just fine in a 75G in my opinion. They don't get as large as the green severums.

I realize the OP is over a month old, but I'll still provide some advice. I have a 90g with 4 RHT's, 1 Sev, 1 Angel, and 4 BA Tetras. I would consider this tank maxed and may even rehome the angel. The RHTs need significant open ground space and sand substrate. They also adopt a pecking order quickly and can be seen lip-locking and chasing eachother often (but no significant aggression). I would recommend these fish as they are beautiful and fantastic for keep the substrate churning (nothing replaces your own cleaning of course). As a datapoint, I purchased 3 juveniles (un-sexed) for $12 each and an adult male for $28.
