I have a old 1 gallon tank that has been sitting unused for a few years now. What should I do with it? Probably no fish but I'm fine with a couple shrimp. I would also need a filter, heater, light, etc. I could get some plants from my other tank
Well the point is I have a tank, I just don't know what to do with it.TheGouramiGuy said:I think if you did some small plants and maybe a nanofish, that setup might work. Nanofish such as neon tetras do like to school, but in a 1 gallon you might have to settle for some shrimp and possibly one fish. This is a bit of a stretch for fish, especially since they love room to dart around but you never know. This topic is definitely up for debate though, but I would recommend a 5 or 10 gallon if you wanted to keep it small.
That would be nice, the more plants the merrier since they feed on the phosphates, it'll make your 1 gallon a lot easier to maintain imo.Brett S. said:My other tank has some ludwigia, S. Repens and java moss. I can take some from that and really fill it up with plants
Absolutely not. ADF should be kept in groups of 3 or more.You could have a African dwarf frog in a 1 gallon tank
that's a great idea! I think it would be great to just have a plant only sort of thingBrett S. said:My other tank has some ludwigia, S. Repens and java moss. I can take some from that and really fill it up with plants
I agree, but it is definitely possible to do one gallon shrimp tanks, many here have heard of and done the beverage dispenser tanks.NickAu said:1 gallon is too small for shrimp because a tank that small is hard to keep stable and shrimp need stability.
In my opinion a 1 gallon tank is too small for any fish including a betta.
I use one of those too but there’s not many things you can do with a 1 gallon tank other than a few inverts or plants. And he already has the tank and no use for it yetNickAu said:Best Qtank in the world and only a few dollars.
Yeah I might not even do anything with it.jjohnwm said:If you must sentence an animal to exist in a 1-gallon torture chamber, why not just make it a planted "aquarium" with a snail or two?
Fish? Shrimp? Sure it's possible...just as it's possible for a human being to exist for years in a tiny prison cell. But...desirable? Come on...
