Be careful with stocking your tank. With such a small tank, you have to do water changes quite often. The more fish you add, the quicket your chemistry gets out of balance...especially with ammonia...which is very toxic to fish. Your best friend is water changes. Try to age your water before adding to the tank. This will remove chlorine and chloramines naturally...and save you money on chemicals like start right and other water conditioners. The other caution is with over feeding. The general rule of thumb with a tank this small is about 30 seconds and 2-3 feedings per day. WATER CHANGES ARE VERY IMPORTANT. The smaller the tank, the more frequent the need for water changes...I suggest at least 20% daily at a minimum (2 gallons).
Good luck....Dwayne
