Alright, so I've been planning on setting up a 2 gallon tank my friend gave me as an npt but now that I'm home nd measured it actually only holds like 1.5 gallons of water. Once I add substrate and plants that seems kind of small.
Is that okay or should I get another tank? I have a 5.5 gallon but I'm afraid of fitting it in my dorm. I'm thinking about getting 2.5 gallon. I'd just get the standard 2.5 gallon but since I want it to be an npt something with a hood/light would be better.
So, any recs? Ordering of amazon might be best because I now qualify for amazon prime and can order with free 2-day shipping. I just got back from a semester abroad so I'm kind of broke. So I'm not looking at spending a lot more than 30ish dollars cause I'm in the process of buying plants/substrate as well.
