Question 75g stocking

Ok because my last thread got confusing so I'm going to repost. I currently have 9 panda cories, 9 gold barbs, 6 otos, 6 small ramshorn snails, 5 ghost shrimp, 4 neons, 3 tetras, 2 striped Raphael catfish some fissiden s. Java moss and some kind of upright plant with white sand as substrate. All are in my 30g. I was wondering if I should move all of them into my empty 75g which has really nothing but water, filters, heaters, and the white sand substrate. And what I should stock the tank with if I were to move the inhabitants from the 30 into the 75.

I guess that's completely up to you and what other types of fish hope to keep. More water and room for the fish is always a good thing just make sure to cycle it first and move the fish over slowly or transfer the filter on your 30 to your 75 until it gets up to speed. You can do a lot with a 75. In mine I house clown loaches, rainbows, roseline sharks, tiger barbs and a couple albino bn plecos.

I would not keep the cats with the tetras, unless you want fat cats and no tetras

Well they've been together for half a year and so far none of my tetras have disappeared and I don't think they will

actually, re-reading this, you'd probably be better off housing the tetra's in the 30, and then adding the cats to the 75

I'd up your tetra numbers so that you have at least 6 of each species. Maybe double the filtration too, mainly just because I like having more than one filter on a tank

as for the 75, if you follow my advice and put the 2 cats in it, you'd have a ton of options. Do you want plants in the 75? If not, then you have a great deal of fish options, but if you want plants in the 75 you can still do a good deal of larger fish. I have plants and big fish in my 75, I got a thread for it in the journal section

3 tetras...? What species of tetra? There are myriads of different species out there.
