Thanks from the suggestions guys. I will probably do both haha small cichlid species tank and a flowerhorn tank.

Oscar and flowerhorn are not what I would call mediunm-sized. To me, both will get a little large for a 75 gallon, except for a shortbody varient flowerhorn. Between the two, I would go with FH over the Oscar for that tank size. Even better would be a fish that stays in the 10" range, like a Macaw cichlid Nicaraguense. A group of smaller cichlids like amatitlania would make a nicer display imo, since you'd get to watch the fish interact. But if you really want a single fish, nothing wrong with that either.
Agree, oscar would be too big for 75 gallon.

I rarely see flowerhorns growing more than 8-9 inches now days. May be because of too much inbreeding.

Could do masked julies for a bottom roaming cichlid. Mine spawned when I had them. Never had a problem with a fh in a 75.
