Ideas

Ideas for what should go in the new 5 gal? I got it all set up and I'm excited. Mainly community fish is what I'm looking into. I have neutral colored rocks with red mixed in. Any ideas? Also, I have no decor yet either.

There are a limited number of species that can go in a 5 gallon. You can do a single betta OR a small schooling fish, such as a celestial pearl danio or another type of microrasbora. Tetras, danios, most livebearers, gouramis or any other sort of community fish are unfortunately out of the question.

You could supplement whatever you decide to do with a few snails and shrimp as well.

Have you completed a fishless cycle?

Nope; not finished yet. In the process then I'm going to get some live plants and thefish. I'll probably end up just doing one of my bettas.

A betta sounds great. Good luck!
