Hi all!
I just got a super cheap 1.5 gallon cube tetra floating starter kit.

Is this big enough for any fish?
What could I put in it?
Is a betta big enough for this tank?
I know this will probably be really hard to cycle.
Any advice is appreciated

I wouldn't put a Betta in it as many people here say a Betta needs a "5g minimum" so i just go along with that. You could put a netreits snail in it maybe although i can't think of it or any other sutible fish that would be entertaining. Idk.

Hope it improves

No, you shouldn't put a betta into this tank.
I would recommend either shrimp or snails.

6 is a good number to start with. Cherry shrimp are a good species. They will reproduce and they will hole their own population based on amount of space and amount of food.

I think I heard they are sensitive? Is that true? Also what do they eat? I guess I could look it up but easier to ask on here. Lol

They can be sensitive, but their low bioload makes them very easy to care for. I'd say if they been living in your tank for more than a couple of weeks, they fine.

They mostly eat microorganisms but you can supplement with fish food and veggies.
