WHAT! Glo fish belong in 4 foot tanks and can't bee properly housed in anything samller than 3 foot tanks and you should NOT have them in a 5 gallon tank with a Betta

16 gallon - 11 neon tetras, 6 Pygmy cories, 6 kuhli loaches and 1 male Betta
15 gallon - 1 male Betta, 3 platies, and 5 guppies
6 gallon - 1 male Betta

All planted tanks

In My Opinion a Betta deserves nothing smaller than a 5 gallon tank

I kind of figured the poster meant 20 gallon long not 20 liters. Hopefully they can come clarify.

Okay so I was looking at another thread and I happened to see that it is actually a 20 gallon long

16 gallon - 11 neon tetras, 6 Pygmy cories, 6 kuhli loaches and 1 male Betta
15 gallon - 1 male Betta, 3 platies, and 5 guppies
6 gallon - 1 male Betta

All planted tanks

They are genetically modified zebra danios that glow under a blacklight. Quite cool-looking, but probably would look out of place in an NPT.

One day I want to have a small child so I can legitimately have a sci-fi themed tank with glofish.

Life.

Yes it is a 20 gallon long and the glofish seem to be fine in it. They are like shots of light in the plants. Haven't put in LED or black light strips yet thinking I can get them around Christmas. Have been more concerned getting the tank set up right and the balance of fish/plants. It has been set for a couple weeks and is doing fine. I still need to get more plants I think but the chem levels are great so maybe we'll see how it fills in for a little while yet. This picture was taken a couple days ago after I messed with some of the plants so it's a little murky

Still wouldn't recommend it, but to each their own!

Such a cute story about the ADF! Too bad they must be separated.. still, way too cute!
