It depends on the size of the rhom you are looking at. Mine was 10" in a 72, I think that is as large as you can go and give him enough room to move around. In a 75, I would see if I could find a large elontatus (thats right SMTT), or maybe a 10" spilo.
I voted for a large rhom for the simple fact that once you have a pygo shoal you will always want more of them, especially when you see a larger shoal of 6+ during a feeding frenzy. And then ofcourse the more you get the larger the tank will have to be. Also a large rhom is badass.
I like the idea of a large Rhom in a 75 gal. But honestly, I preferre a shoal of Pygos. Rhoms are badasses, but at times it gets kinda boring having one fish with huge space. Now a shoal is more interesting with each fish having their own personality. Technichally, Its really up to you to decide.
