Do guys know of some small peaceful oddball fish I have a 75 gallon aqaurium
Folks on the forum definitely love recommending fish lol but before that - could you tell us what your water parameters are like? Also, are there any current fish you have stocked in there?

This info. will help determine suggestions for ya so we know what works and what doesnt.

Thanks!

Oddball fish. Hmmmm... A reedfish is an oddball but they aren't small. Bristlenose and zebra plecos look pretty weird but again, not small. Kuhli loaches are also weird looking.

We need your GH before we can recommend things, but a big group of halfbeaks would be super cool, or a ton of ricefish. Some variety of gobies are pretty cool as well.

Dicrossus filamentosus or dicrossus maculatus if your water is soft enough and tank mates are peaceful. And I mean, like, really soft enough.

If you have enough you may see the males lock jaws and barrel roll around to impress a female to mate with (very soft conditions for breeding). Loser male usually takes off once he's lost and before any significant damage occurs (keep an eye on though).

I'm looking at them as a possibility for a biotope I'm slowly building, neat and interesting to watch at one of my lfs'.

I actually don’t have the tank with water in it yet I am going to start cycling it to for about a month and a half but I am going to put tropical fish in the tank the other stocking chooses will be based on the oddball or main show fish.
