ever since i moved my rbps to thier new 75 gal tank which was monday they have been eating like crap. they eat.... just not in the way they did when they were in the 20 gal. i was feeding them beef heart ,and bloodworms. i have been trying to feed catfish,and shrimp. they eat a little then let the rest go. getting frustrated. i guess what i am doing in a whinning kind of way is asking if this is par for the course . new invironment,and new food = less eating for awhile?

Yeah, they just probably need to adjust to their new home.

I'm sure you'll have your badasses back soon.

I think what you've got there is fine.

Personally, when I do a pygo tank, I put all the decor to the ends leaving the center open as their "Feeding arena."

Example given.

you wouldnt need another filter dude...my buddy dairywhip on here has an fx3 on his 75 and it pumps amazing...dont worry about it not being able to handle it, he had like 15 5" reds in there before, and it well kept up to his needs.....dont worry about the fish either...just let them adjust....just dont feed them for a day or 2...then when you toss some shrimp or talpia or something in it they will go for it..
