Rate my Central/South American Tank
Here is the list of fish in the 75. All fish are happy and healthy.

1 M Green Terror
2 F Green Terrors
2 M Firemouths
1 M Honduran Red Point( I under estimated these guys there tough and nasty)
1 F Honduran Red Point
1 M Jaguar Cichlid ( :? This guy is really overated the Red Point male beasts him)

I can't afford real plants because they destroy them so quickly.

Not a very good combination. The Jaguar cichlids and green terrors get much much much to large for a 75 gallon tank. By the time they were full grown, they would snack on the red points.

I understand the need for more space which I will provide when they get too big but the Red Points are currently the most furious fish in the tank. In fact the female attacks everyone very often.

From personal experience I can tell you that the Jaguar needs to be the only one in that 75 once it starts nearing adult size. If you don't rehome the other fish the jaguar will probably kill them. Males are extremely territorial. My jag didn't even like ME in the fish room!
