Talking A 2.5 tank? (yes about fish but not bettas ) X3

I got a 2.5 tank with a filter and light (for only 5$ hehehe). Its really cute :D I would love another betta but if I want to own a pet store or an online pet store :D I would need to know about more then bettas!!! And I think it would be fun to try somthing else.

I do have a heater if I need it, a lot of fake plants and can easly get more! The only problem is that I still need to change the filter out and get a new light.

I was thinking about a goldfish! (I had one once when vERY young... it died fast) So maybe I can try (not my mummy). I was also thinking about those tiny neon fish or a few shrimp. Snails would be cool. I would really want a GUPPY or two hehehe but I really don't want to over crowed anything. So a goldfish, shrimp, little fish, snails, GUPPY or anything else?

So dose anyone know about a lot of fish facts that can help me out? I don't want to hurt anything.

If all fails I can gust go get another betta ;D

You can't have a goldfish, one needs a 30 gallon minimum. You could do snails, but not Apple Snails. You can definately do 3-4 shrimp, and I believe you could do 1 guppy

Goldfish need huge tanks. They are misunderstood like bettas and are often put in bowls.

Any shrimp except for Bamboo Shrimp.....good kinds are Ghost Shrimp and Red Cherry Shrimp, and in a 2.5 I'd say you could do 1 Guppy happily

Awesome! I will look at what shrimp I can find, I also love the guppy idea! Can I do two(probly not tho..) ? Can I do a mix, like a mystery snail, like two ghost or cherry shrimp and maybe a moss ball?

I want more then one guy if I can!

Guppies should be at least two or more. I've had them before..they should do fine in that size of a tank if you get two guppies, 1-2 gost shrimp, and a snail.

No snail, they have HEAVY bio-loads, to much for a small tank (they need 5 gallons or more)
