I have them.  I speak from personal experience. I have 1 male about 11" and 3 females all between 6" and 8".  A 4' tank will NEVER hold them.  I have mine in a 7' 210 gallon,  and just 15 minutes ago removed the male to his own tank.  He bred with one of the females about 40 days ago,  and so far the other females are not spawning and the one that did is not ready to go again.  He has been absolutely brutal to the females for the last week.  And that's in 7 feet of space.  In 4 feet of space they would surely be killed in no time.  Wait until you get the 6 footer.  And make that a 180 or up which is 6x24" wide.  These fish need LOTS of space.  Oh yeah,  and in that same 7' tank the dominant male killed the other male that was actually bigger than him.

For tank mates?  Have to be something durable.  I am going to add a large pink Oreochrommis Mossambicus,  and probably a Paratilapia Bleekeri and some large syno cats for the bottom.

Oh yeah, welcome to the forum!

75 won't hold them for long IMO. Couple of months maybe I could be wrong.
