5 gallon tank

So, being that Pudge is on his own, the tank looks rather dreary. Since he's usually only in one corner of the tank, the rest is not being used....


I saw someone mention on another forum they had something called an otocat in a 5 gallon. The look cute, but do they need a bigger tank and/or sand?

I currently have marbles in there right now, and I'm not sure if I'm keep on removing them, unless I put sand over them...

I don't like the idea of snails. And kind of animal like worms/snails/slugs creep me out and I'd rather have no bettas at all than have snails in my tank (I'm that serious). Also, I don't have any hiding places for shrimp. nor does my Petsmart supply them.

I really would like something to just hang around Pudge, seeing as how he isn't as hostile as Buddha is.

If I do get more fish, I won't be dividing the tank again (obviously), so I will wait for when I move out to get another one.

So yea...any help? :)

(oh, and the tank is filtered with a marble base, with a log, a skull, and two fake plastic plants)

I will not be getting anything yet, will most likely wait a few months, or until the tank has settled down (it's only a little over a week old)

oto cats are VERY delicate......keep that in mind. I had one with stable water parameters, understocked tank, fresh vegetables and algae wafers in a 10 gallon tank and it just died. :(

They grow to about 2 inches.

You can't have anymore fishy friends in a tank below 10 gallons. Just snails and shrimp. But they usually get eaten. >.<

What do you mean? You're posting right now. Do you mean how to make a thread? Go to a section, (i.e. Betta Compatibility) and above all the threads on the left side, there's a button that says "New Thread". Click it, make your thread with the title, and then submit. :)
