Hi I’m from greeece and I got pretty interesting in the aquarium hobby but thing I live in Greece and not many interesting in the hobby so I can’t learn the needed in this hobby I hope I get some experience in this forum. I had many looses due to parasites and I started learning by experimenting. I started with 35 gallons angelfish tank now I updated to 75 gallons and I try to figure out what to keep in it at the moment I have 4 molly some cardinal tetras and some neon tetra in it. I was thinking if I can make it work with red belly piranhas tetras and some angelfish since all of them are native to South America

There is no problem with legalities all pet shops sells then. Can you suggest something like pacu piranha Oscar that will not grow too much to be able to keep a 5-6 at 75 gallons

If you're looking for a good size centerpiece to go with the rest of your stock, gouramis are a good start. Lots of options, though not all of them will be happy long term in a 75, or play nice with your tetras. Some of the more peaceful cichlids like kribensis, apistogramma or rams might also be a good option, though rams tend to be harder to keep as they're very intolerant of water issues. Also, being cichlids, there's a risk they won't be mild tempered at all. Angels should work with any of these options, though again, they're also cichlids, so YMMV.

Pacu get very large, I don't think a 75 is good for even 1. Piranha want to be in a larger group, and to be honest, most of the time they're not that exciting to watch. I'm not sure a 75 is suitable for them either. As for oscars, you could probably keep one in a 75, but it's going to eat anything that fits in it's mouth, and pretty much everything else in the tank is going to fit in it's mouth pretty fast.
