5.5 gallon

I had my 5.5 gallon 'wiped out' by ?. I am going to reset the tank. What fish could I put in it? (I am looking for something fairly uncommon.) Our well water is soft with a pH of around 5.5-6.0 if this helps any. Any suggestions?

I might do just that... been wanting to try a young betta for a while. For one about 1'' what food would be best? I have Hikari first bites, frozen mysis, betta pellets, flake, spirulina, granule and freeze dried brineshrimp.

These boys like the pellets but also love mysis shrimp, blood worms and their weekly pea.

Your bettas are beautiful! I got a baby 'female' at Petco (the only place I can find them) yesterday. I still cannot see the ovipositor. She looks healthy to me. Thanks for the suggestions!
