Personally, i don't like my guys to have less then 3 gallons. That being said, I do have a 1 gallon and a 2 gallon wine glass that I do use.

I really do not like the wine glass simple because it is round and hard to see into it, Everything gets massivly distorted



and I also have the hawkeye 1G corner tank.
I bought it for a fish I saw in walmart that was in BAD shape. He healed rather well in the 1 gallon even though it was unheated *gasp*


He turned into this

I will say, I do not like those small small tanks that come with dividers. o_O It isn't all that great for fishy and can cause an ammonia crisis

On the comment of "less to guard" I had one fish who would relentlessly patrol his 10 gallon all day each day. He slept at night (I think)
Okay good I was just beinga rancid thank you and is 99 percent water change weekly enough there's a filter?

I just got a small HMPK two days ago and he is in a 1 gal tank with plants. He loves it! :)
Mine barely takes any space and 10 doesn't overwhelm carter he loves it and I was only ak,we'd two tanks,

Yeah, it came with a built in light. I just don't want my plants dying on me. My tank gets about 3 hours of sunlight on a good day, but with the hurricane passing through I won't get real light for almost a week... I hope my plants pull through.

99% water change for what?

I do find rounded bowls and whatnot distort I did have a 3 gallon 360, but I disliked it for that reason. Lost the fish even when looking straight at it O_o

I have no idea... I do a 50% weekly, gravel siphoning without filters... 100% once a month.

I do a 25% for cycled 10 gallons.

Shaina, love the yellow plants! :)
