Stocking my new 75 gallon tank

Postby ray86 » Sat Jun 01, 2019 12:58 am

Hi I looking for advise on stocking a 75 gallon tank. I’m looking to stock with haps and peacock. How many fish can I put and what are some good colorful cichlids to put in?

Do you want mixed gender or all-male? All male is a challenging tank. Read the all-male article in the Cichlid-forum Library for pros and cons.

I would prefer to have an all male tank.

For me I like 12 individuals that mature at 6" or less for this tank size. Read the article for other guidelines and some ideas.

Make sure you have extra tanks and a rehoming plan.

Look at the Retailers section or send a PM to a Member for a recommendation.
