So my last thread was about keeping my female in the living room in a 1 gal Minibow or moving her to an unfiltered 5 gal. Well I was able to find a filter from a previous setup of mine and now she's in a marineland 5 gal with a tetra whisper filter and a silk plant, lantern ornament, and Marimo moss with black gravel and it looks great and she has so much more space! Pic below (sorry if it's upside down). But why do some stores recommend tanks that are so small? My mom actually asked why don't I just have her in a cup because they just swim around and don't need that much space! Like they're ingraining this falseness into people that fish don't need filtration and space and it's frustrating!
