I used to have a frog! It was so weird...for a couple of months he was transparent. I was about six so my twin sister and I named him hopper.

I'm confused (forgive me I'm blond) but do you mean that I could fit one betta with two snails OR one betta with three shrimps in a 5gall tank?

Being blonde doesn't mean you're stupid, it varies on the individual person. What they were trying to say was, you can have one betta and 1 snail OR 1 betta and 2-3 shrimp. Snails produce a lot of ammonia so having 1 in a 5G with a betta is also kinda pushing the limit.

LOL. I do get straight "A" s. For the past grading period, my lowest subject was math, 97 percent in the accelerated class. Not to brag. I'm getting off topic! I'm still not sure about a five gall being too small, though. I think that having two fish wouldn't be to much for a five gallon. Bryanacute had most of her females in a sorority five gall. Is there any combination of two fish (one having to be a betta, of course) that would work in a five gall? Not that shrimp and snails aren't cool, but I would prefer fish.

No, unless you divide the tank for a betta. Maybe 1 dwarf puffer. (They're messy and aggressive, research them and don't think they're easy to take care of if you see how they look. No bettas with them, either) Bryana was taking care of an ill female I heard, sororities will need a minimum of 10G.

Yeah again unless your tank is divided you can have two betta but that is the only other fish you can keep in 5 gallons. A full on working sorority is 10 gallons minimum.

I also have a question...I'm kind of worried, but I'm not sure if I should start a new thread. When I got home from school, the water in both of my tanks was 85* with no heater. For now, I have just chosen to leave the overhead light off. Should I be worried about the temp being that high?

Big news!!! :D For my B-day tank, I'm allowed to get about a twelve gallon! I'm also allowed to bring in a new class pet that ONLY I get to take care of (in addition to the tarantula that only I take care of, the cockroach that I help with, and the bearded dragon that I help with. Our teacher loves animals!) AND my parents have agreed to let me get an other one for my mom's new office, as long as she gets to pick it out!
