      I believe a 75 gal aquarium is only large enough for a pair of 7.5" fish when adults.
      To me a couple "aggressive" cichlids that fit your criteria, might be a pair of T salvini.
      The problem in a small tank like 75 gal, with a pair of fish, is an aggressive male will likely kill the female, or visa versa if the female is dominant.
      You may not consider salvini monster fish, but monster fish need monster tanks, and in comparison a 75 gal tank, is a puddle.

      You can do a single wetpet/bruiser in a 75 as long as you keep up with maintenance.

      Flowerhorn
      Midevils
      Motas
      Trimacs
      Cuban pair
      Grammodes pair
      Loisellei
      Green Terror pair
      Jack Dempsey pair
      Female Red Terror
      Female Jag
      Black Nasty
      Beanie

      Etc.

      There are lots to choose from. Just try to stay away from stuff that'll hit 16"+ and you should be fine for a solitary glass banger.

      Again, smaller tank means you have to keep up with water changes or your fish' health will suffer and the growth will be stunted. It'll be better if you could switch that 75 out for a 6' tank.

      One flowerhorn will be ur best bet in a 75gal..

      They are really aggressive and active.

      If u are ok with feeding live food, once it get bigger, u can feed it with centipede, frog, cricket, lizard, and small fishes once in a while..but quarantine them first.. however, many in this forum will disagree with it.

      Another vote for exodons here. Or flowerhorn. There are tons of awesome flowerhorns who need homes.
