I know it is very limited for options with a small tank like a 5 gallon but I have one and I mean to use it! I have a few ideas that are followed up with a little but of resurch. It is hard to come to choose what to do! Some guides say that one or two of a type of fish would live fine in the 5 gallon but then another says the same type of fish needs 20 gallons!
I am not sure what to do but here is what I am thinking of so far:
- A small Oscar alone OR
- 4 Endler's Livebearers OR
- A Crystal Red Shrimp parradise (7 shrimp but I am worried about breeding) OR
- dividing the tank in two and put my two male bettas in there
I am also making this a planted tank. I want it to have some Java Moss, Moss Balls, and Ancharis. I have a heater, AQ salt, conditioner and a thermometer. I have a lot of other things as well.
What do you guys think?
