5 gal bow..


I have an empty 5 gal that I used to house 2 bettas (divided). My delmia is whether I should put my bettas back in there, or try for other fish.

I know not many fish would be happy in a 5 gal, but what's suggested for it? Guppies?

10 gal nano reef
• 2 percula clowns
• 1 Yellow Tailed Blue Damsel
• 2 types of Mushrooms
• Assorted Polyps
• 3 Red Legged Hermit Crabs
• Assorted Snails (lost count)

• 8 Betta's (CT's and HM's)

You're right that a 5 gallon is tough to stock. One suggestion I'll toss out (if you don't want to put your Betta back in there) would be White Clouds (Tanichthys albonubes). You could house a nice trio of these fish in a 5 gallon successfully and they are pretty little fish.

Guppies and bettas, not always the best of mixes is all I'll say

So I think you should just give mr.betta back his space.. Hehe..

Or paradisefish, or Badis badis, or Polycentropsis....or a 5 gallon nano reef!
