can i put a fish in a 2.5gallon

I'll make this short and sweet........

2.5gallon tank (going to be drilled)
2.5 gallon sump with as much live rock and macro as I can fit in it.


Yes or no, and if yes which one?

I know this is a dumb question and the answer is going to probably be an overwhelming NO, but i figured I would ask.......just incase I missed something.


thanks in advance for responses.......

I will say one fish that will get no bigger than 1 inch eventual adult size. there is these little purple fish that come to mind, but I can't think of the name.

Good Luck!

I think my 3 green gobies would be happy in a 2.5 gallon tank. They're pretty inactive and happy just to sit on the corals all day.

If you go with Damsels, go with Green Chromis, or another one of the less aggressive species. I made the mistake of putting 2 Blue Damsels in a 10 gal. when I first started.

Needless to say, one of the little guys was very unhappy, the bigger (more aggressive) one kept the little one in a corner for about 4 days before I finally said enough is enough. I had to take them back to the fish store. Hope it works out for you though!

I would think you could get away with 1 small fish, but it needs to be something that is not very active. There is not much swimming room in a 2.5G.

A goby of some sort is your best bet.

I'd get 3 different color gobies if I were you. My green's are about 3/4 of an inch long. I've seen small yellow ones at the LFS.

Neon's are small and inactive. They like to sit atop coral.
