Synodontis or Pictus catfish are awesome and don't get too big. Of course that depends on what other fish you keep with them. Remember that Pictus like to livein groups.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

Is this the same 75 as your 2 Oscars and others are already in? Dangerously overstocked already if so.

A 75g tank is suitable for 1 Oscar only, no tankmates. Territorial aggression and stress from overcrowding are major health issues. Water quality also becomes a health hazard. I see from your other thread that you run a sump system. Excellent filtration, but not a free pass to over stock a tank.

way too many fish for the 75 not sure whats already there but 2 Oscars plus others must be a nightmare to keep nitrates in check.

I would have recommended either striped/spotted rapheals or sun/eclipse catfish

if it is over 75 gallons, striped raphael catfish is good. Other possible bottom dwellers may be stingrays, sorubim lima, and large bichirs.

what stingrays can live in a 75? I think that would be a bad idea

Or a Lima SN cat? Ummm...no. The OP already is stocked well beyond safe capacity.

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.
