Question Adding another fish to a small tank?

So I recently got two blind cave fish and have them in a 1.5 gallon tank with a filter and heater and sand, but i would like to get one more blind cave tetra to join them, would three be to much in a tank that size? they are rather small...

IMO that tank is too small for the 2. They may be small now, but they grow. JMO.

Welcome! If you stepped up to a 10g, you could get that third cave fish.

Welcome, agreed with everyone on the larger tank. IMO a 1.5 gall is too small for a betta let alone 3 fish. Step up to a 10 gal and you'll be much happier

5.6 litres? I would argue that's not enough for any fish at all!
135 litre (35 US gallons) 6 Black Widow Tetra; 3 Mollies; 3 Bronze Cory; 1 Pygmy Cory; 6 Gold Barbs
27 litre (7 US gallons) 6 Guppies.

Welcome, shouldn't be long before MTS hits anyways lol. Yeah I don't think 1.5 gallons would even be good for quarantine. 10 gallons is super small as it is, let alone 1.5! Good luck with your fishies

When in doubt, do a water change!

If someone gives good advice, thank them with some rep points!
