RTCs only go with giants. Bigger is best, slightly smaller might work. They'll eat anything.

You do realize you're talking about a fish that gets 4-5 feet long and close to 100 lbs full grown right. All those fish will be eaten eventually. I've seen rtcs grow an inch a month. It's unbelievable. No offense but why do you own this fish? I hope you have a 1000 gallon plus aquarium ready for it

I liked it and I'm putting him in my fish pond 4000 gallons so I can still watch him it's 76 degrees constantly so I thought that would do

Fair enough it's nice to know you have a good home ready when he gets big. Most people don't. Stock wise just make sure it is bigger than his mouth.

I'd add nothing, you're overstocked as it is. A 75 is on the small size for a pair of dempsey as it is, let alone adding a 7" eating machine to the mix, because RTC never stop eating, and are messy as you should already know.
