a hard choice...

I have a 3-6 gallon tank...I have no real idea what size it is, I'll have to take a picture of it soon, but I'm not sure if I want another betta...but if I don't then what else can I put in there? maybe live feeders,snails,shrimp,guppys?...or maybe some other type of fish? I have no real idea...

I need some help decideing...what do you guys think I can put in a 3-6 gallon tank?

EDIT: thought you meant with a betta.
Really bettas are pretty much the only thing. OR you could do a dwarf puffer, some shrimp maybe.

dwarf puffer...you mean like a puffer fish?... ._. also I don't think I have dwarfs around here...

I think I have shrimp being sold at the petshop...but...their not to exciteing to watch...shrimps for me are most likely cleaning pets...not actual pets themselfs...


you sure there is noting else?...it doesn't have to be aquatic...but I don't think anything land base can live in a 3-6gallon tank...

Um, someone has Madgascar Hissing Cockroaches on this forum. Idr who though. I'm pretty sure you could fit some of those in there.
Hermit crabs would probably be okay.

Just google 5 gallon stocking options or something.

ANd these are dwarf puffers. They're cute. Vaygirl has one.

DAW such big greeeeennn EYES. XD

also here are some pictures of the tank, it's a bit dirty...need to clean it good later...but for 3 dollars it's a good deal considering it's not broken or anything.

Hm. It looks like an top fin aquascene 5 gallon.


You should see how many milk jugs it takes to fill it up and you'll know for sure then.

To find out how many gallons it is, use this formula: lenghth times width times hight divided by 231... However, I'm guessing its five gal. lucky u got your hands on another tank.

It looks a lot like my 4 gallon tank.

This is an awesome site where you can put in the measurements.. http://reef.diesyst.com/volcalc/volcalc.html

Its really not big enough to put guppies or fish like that in, they need to be in groups. It would be a great tank for a betta or hermit crab, ADFs? Firebelly toads, etc.
