I would do mbuna and peacocks, to me, its a waste of tank space with one single fish in a tank, especially in a 75g.
In my 75g i have 18 mbuna, afra, and peacocks, and one blue cray, and it just pops with all the colors plus you get lots of tank activity, instead of just one lathergic fish. I'm anti-oscar, and i apologize in advance for anyone i offend, but i just dont see why anyone would want one, theyre just so bland and non-entertaining, plus you cant have any tank mates becayse theyll kill anything you put in it, yeah sure maybe a pleco and some kind of tetra, IMO
if you want that just paint the back of your tank black and add a few peices of drift wood and fake plants, add no fish at all, and have people look for the fish in the tank. it would LITERALLY be the some effect of having ONE oscar in there.
Africans are they way to go in that size of tank IMO
if you had a 125g or something large, go for oscars i guess, i dont know how many you could have in it without a bloodbath, but in a 75g, it would be a waste of tank.
