In a 75gl You might find it hard with more than one or two pairs. I wouldnt mix single species by themselves (one Agassizii, one Cacautoides, etc). Maybe look into getting one male and two or three females, to form a harem.
I'd say two pairs max though, with hardscape divided towards the opposite ends so that way it doesnt end up with only one pair getting structure.

nah, do straight pairs, i've found that 1.2 on apisto species don't breed as well as a pair...i would suggest the curviceps for this tank, really a great, active fish...

My plan is either just one large group of one species or two pairs/harem of one species or one pair/harem of two species

Just depends on the species I get. As I was reading about them and some of them do better in larger groups and some in pairs.

How would the Siamese algae eater be in the tank?? I heard they are good with hair algae. Is this true? I have some growing

Rummynose tetras are 2" full grown. I wouldn't put 50 in a 75G, I'd suggest a maximum of 25-30. I also wouldn't put 3 SAE's in. I have 2 in my 75G and that's plenty. They grow quickly to full size of 6". They will eat eat hair algae. They are very hungry fish and will need to be supplemented with a vegetable like zucchini.
