"Big" fish suitable for this tank

Some of you may know I have been working on a 75 gallon tank. Originally going to be a cichlid tank I changed my mind due to more options with freshwater and I need to move some fish in my 29 gallon to the 75. So I would like fish that get at least 5' inches. No discus. ( to expensive and heard hard to take care of ) I will have 2 angels, but wondering if there is anything other than that. It will be a community so something peaceful please! Here are pics of the build so far, it's not finished either! thanks guys!

You can still do a cichlid. Like a severum or a true parrot cichlid

A yellow lab is an african cichlid, there aggressive and territorial. The severum and true parrot are SA cichlids i think. There not as aggressive or territorial as labs.

Some are very aggressive and some aren't. Hybrid fish are unpredictable. Some Parrots have trouble eating due to a deformed mouth. I personally don't support hybrids.
So I'm sure others can answer this.

Don't worry I hate the sale of hybrids. valentine parrots are the worst however. But In a 75 id put
10x boesemani rainbows
2x German blue rams
5x pearl gourami
1x red tail shark
5~or~6 roseline sharks
Some other fish can prolly go in there but depends on what they are.

I think they're actually brackish. Is there really a full 100% freshwater goby?

I thought the only true freshwater goby was the 'desert goby'. The neon goby being the only exception.
