Sail Fins are not fine in a 75. Everyone says they are going to upgrade and or find them a new home when they get bigger, but it never happens. Thats all Im going to say on the subject,

The male sailfin tends to grow larger then the female hence needing more room but the female or male as a juvenile can be kept in a 75 but will require more space as it gets older and I must admit he is right a lot of people say they will upgrade when their fish out grows their tank but honestly speaking how many people will upgrade a tank to accommodate just one fish?

Well I am saying that the sailfin is fine in the 75 assuming that the owner would upgrade the tank later on to accommodate the fish. There is nothing we can do if the owner does not find a better means of living for the fish in its adult stage. I personally love upgrading systems so putting my fish in a bigger better home is no problem.

Agreed. Your sail fin doesn't have enough room. Even when small he needs swimming space. We say this over and over and many just ignore the advice, so it's your tank. I too have made my only comment.
