You can do 1/2 gallon sw tanks..it is just much harder than say a 30 or 40 gallon tank.

I think I will be following this then. Provided my betta gets a long with these embers I have coming in I will have an empty 5 gallon as well.

That would be true!

Would it be best to have a hood or no hood?

I know with my tank if i leave the top open for a day i have more evaporation than i do with it closed so would that be better to keep any major swings from happening
