Well, naive as I am, I bought a 1 gal tank for my Betta. I learned very quickly that this is too small and I am going to be getting him a bigger tank next week.
My question is this: Is there anything that can live happily in this space?
I would really rather find a good use for the tank than throw it away. It's brand new. And of course I won't sell it to someone who's just gonna put a poor sad fish in it. I don't need a hospital/quarantine tank since I only have one fish.
I know it's too small for fish, and any fish small enough for the tank are schooling fish who would not be happy alone. But what about shrimp and things like that? I was looking at Candy Stripe Pistol Shrimp, they are really pretty, but I don't really know anything about keeping them.
If I'm at a dead end here, of course I will swallow my wasted money (which of course, is entirely my fault for not researching my new pet) and get rid of the tank, but I just want to know my options.
