Default fantasy 75G setup

Ok, so I just picked up a used, but new to me 75G tank. I should have it all cleaned up by this weekend and then Im ready to go crazy .

Currently I have a 125G stocked with about 30-40 solid yellow Labs and about 20 demasoni (this will eventually be converted to an all male hap/peacock tank.

So for this 75, Im looking for stocking ideas, and thought it would be neat to see some of your ideas on a fantasy 75G setup. So shoot let me know what your dream 75G look like.

You'll need a lot more than a tank for saltwater though.

How about a low tech planted tank with 100 of your favorite schooling tetras?

man this is going to be tough. SW Scares me. I started off Jan 2015 with a single 29 gallon tank, I'm currently at 1 X 29G, 1 x 120G, 2 x 40breeders, 3 x 20longs, 3x 10G, 3 x 5G and now 1 x 75G so I obviously have an aquarium addiction . If I go SW I think that I might have to move to a bigger house .

I preped my 29G last week for a low tech system. I have a soil mix, with about 2" cap. I'm just trying to figure out how I'm going to scape it.

wow severe case of MTS there ....well my advice is enjoy the freshwater side .
my advice would be to go salt but u have too many tanks to concentrate on a salt tank ... the great thing about freshwater is it has its ups and downs and beauty , with salt u will need some standalone one on one time ...
jm2c...not saying it cant be done ....
cheers

If you switch to SW, you'll be able to manage your tanks better because you'll end up clearing out all but one - just one SW tank.
