I was just thinking that after making my post. I don't think they are going to be able to tell a half gallon extra. Unless that is, if they really do check the amount drop for drop. That would just be scary at that point.

They do make a good point - I mean what are they going to do ... watch you fill it the first time and see if it takes exactly 5.5 gallons??

After you put gravel and decorations in a 5.5 gallon tank it holds just under 5 gallons of water ;) Use 10 pounds of gravel.

Thanks!

And yep, after reading through y'all's comments and thinking it over... I think I'll go for the 5.5 gallon tank. I'm sure my Hall Coordinator won't mind too much (she knows about Tian-Tian already 'cause she was there when I brought him home the first time). I will definitely go for the extra gravel, haha!

I'll see if I can coerce someone to get me a ride over to the fish store later today (I gotta get some epic housework done, first). Yay for moving back in with the folks for the summer? lol

Well my boys must be catching on to my diabolical plan, for neither of them ate dinner tonight. Granted, I failed to feed them last night, so I must've thrown the both of them off. but they've done this before and bounced right back, so I'm not too worried at this point.

So! If anyone has tips for accommodating two fish into the same tank for the first time, I'd love to hear how y'all did it.

No, I would only divide 10 gallons and up. A 2.5 in half is just a bigger pet store cup
