If you have the room, get the 105. Bigger is better in tanks as they are more stable and give you more options in fish and aquascaping. The extra 100 is a one time shot but the benefits continue long after. Just IMO. Good luck, wish I had your "problem". OS.

You have quite the collection going on lol. Do you plan on keeping your pleco? If so, then I'd go for the bigger tank. Then you can start getting your tetra schools refined. Gotta love new tanks.

Unfortunately i have to go with the 75 due to space requirements

Any suggestions on stocking in the 75?
