I have a 75 gal tank (4' Length x 18" Width x 20 or 21" Tall). I am running a Marineland Emperor 400 filter and a separate Marineland Magnum 350 Canister filter. I have the below stock list.

1 x Oscar about 5.5" or 6" in length
1 x Texas (Carpintis or something like that) about 5" in length
1 x Female JD about 4.5" in length
1 x Firemouth about 3" or 3.5" in length
1 x Blue Acara about 2.5" or 3" in length
2 x Female Convicts about 2" in length

I know and understand that it will not be feasible to keep all these wonderful fish in this tank.
My favorites so far are the Texas, JD and Blue Acara. My wife's favorite is the Oscar. I have already contemplated getting rid of the Firemouth as it is the bully of the tank and the fourth largest fish.

My question to everyone here on the forum and those that read this post is this:
What would you keep and which ones would you remove? What do you think will work long term? I thank you for your advice and experience.

The first question you should ask yourself - or your wife - is: "Do we want to keep the Oscar?"

If the answer is yes, the rest of the list needs to go, and the problem is solved. :)
