5.5 gallon

  1. Betta Fish Compatibility
    I’m sure this question has been asked about a MILLION times here, but I feel like there’s very mixed opinions and I’m just not sure haha. So my betta seems to be pretty chill other than flaring at his heater every once in a while and nipping his fins. I’ve started feeding him frozen food and he...

    Hi everyone! I have gotten one suggestion for a heater already, but I'd love some more to look into :) I currently have this one Top Fin® Betta Aquarium Heater | fish Heaters | PetSmart and it works, it just is kinda difficult to keep consistent, plus I just switched thermometers and it is...

    Hi there! I bought my betta a few days ago. I calculated my aquarium and it says it's an approximate 6gallon. Everything was set up prior to me putting him in the tank (bettaplus water conditioner, heated water at 78, and the divider was already in the tank). He seems happy in his divided side...

    Hello again! My Haytham has a nice 5.5 Gallon aquarium to live in, and while my aqueon 10w is doing a somewhat decent job of keeping my temp stable [mainly because its been rather warm lately], i am planning on getting a much better heater for my tank. This is the heater i plan on...
  6. Betta Fish Compatibility
    I just got a 5.5 gallon tank to move my lovely betta fish into, but I really want to get some other fish for the tank. Before everyone yells that you can only keep one or two fish in a 5.5, I understand your concern but mine is surprisingly decent of a size, and I have had many fish in tanks...

    Today my new heater and hood arrived, so I decided head down to Petco to get the rest of the tank and see if they had any bettas that caught my eye. After looking around for a while, I finally spotted this guy. He was tucked way up on a high shelf where he was hard to see, but I knew right away...

    Right now I have a half-moon (probably rosetail) betta and a nerite snail in a 5.5 gallon rectangular tank with a hydor theo 25 watt heater and a TOM internal mini filter. I have live plants in the tank as well, but because I recently switched from my old 2.5 gallon to this 5.5 gallon, the tank...
  9. Meet the Betta Keepers
    Hey guys! After a lot of research, a fishless cycle that luckily only took 2 weeks and another visit to the pet store my Betta is finally swimming around in his 5,5G tank. It did cost me a lot more money than I first thought it would be, but it was definitely worth it. He got here last friday...

    Hi. i have one betta in a 5.5 gallon tank, but the tank looks really empty. Is there anything I can put in with him or is the tank too small?
  11. Planted Betta Tanks
    I am looking into putting some plants in a 5.5 gallon tank with standard lighting and am wondering what are some hardy, low light plants? An employee from Petsmart told me when I got the tank/starter kit that I would be able to have plants with the light it came with but I would like a 2nd...

    I'm currently looking into setting up a 5.5 gallon tank. As this will be my first time keeping such a "large" tank, I was wondering what "deep cleaning" would look like or if it would even be needed? I plan to have a few plants (probably some java moss, anubias nana and a marimo moss ball) in a...

    I am new to betta keeping and i would like your opinions on which heater would be the best for a 5.5 gallon tank. I would prefer something adjustable over the ones that have a preset temperature.

    This is a video I took of little Mojo when I'd first transferred him from his little half gallon tank to his new 5.5 gallon tank! Didn't take me too long to see how how happy he was with all his newly found space! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8cmr3OCN3Lo

    Little Mojo in his new beehive hiding place! Hey Everyone! As you may (or may not) know, I switched Mojo to his new 5.5 gallon tank yesterday and gave him a little hiding place for it too! Here's a pic of him peeking out of his little hiding place! So cute! He just LOVES it

    Ok, so a while ago I posted about getting Mojo a 10 gallon. Well today we went to Petco to get the tank and we get there and my mom kept insisting that "a little betta does NOT need that huge tank for himself". *sigh* :???: . So I ended up with a 5.5 gallon which is still a lot bigger than his...
