That is horribly overstocked! Not to mention cruel! An Adf needs at the bare minimum THREE gallons to itself, betta needs minimum of TWO gallons, and mystery snails are POOP MACHINES and should not be kept in a 2.5 because they will foul the water in hours... With the stocking choices you have made, you will need to do a 100% water change every day to keep the water healthy for the inhabitants, and that is t even factoring in the swimming space required. You really should do your research before stocking a tank that small...


Any member on this site will tell you the same. A 2.5 gallon tank is not really suitable for anything but a single betta... And that's it. Period.

Doesnt matter if it's filtered, the swimming space is a major issue. When you upgrade I must insist that for the health of your animals you get at least TEN gallons to house them in.

You don't have to cap for me.
I understand it was a mistake, I was taking petsmarts advice.
I hopefully soon will be able to have a ten gallon or at least five then ten

Thank you.
I was feeling attacked and I knew I messed it up already. I didn't need to be attacked because of it
I trusted petsmart to know and so I did what they said was ok.
I think the filter helps with the snail poop but I do change the water a lot also.

One of the many things you'll learn here - don't trust petshops. :p

You don't think I already felt crappy about it? I did!
But I found the fact that my poor second Betta was in a HALF GALLON more pressing than the 2.5g the frog had.
So I bought all the stuff for jaws today so he could have a beautiful 3g home too.

And no I found out VERY quickly that's pet stores don't know their butts from the hole in the ground.
