    Hi there! I currently have a betta in my 3.5 gallon tank, and I’m saving up to buy him a nice planted ten gallon. (All to himself. But I may add a few shrimp later on.) But, that means I would have a 3.5 gallon left over. Is there any fish (or invertebrate) that I could put in there? Any suggestions are appreciated!

    It could be a nice shrimp tank with bright colored shrimp.

    I was thinking about that. I could also use some parts of the plants that I would have it my ten gallon. But I would have to figure out where to put the tank....

    There is nothing I love more than a tiny shrimp tank as thickly planted as possible with a handful of bright shrimp :D it's gorgeous if you can get the ecosystem to balance

    1 ADF. But I think they should be in groups.

    Some RCS and moss would look beautiful with more plants for it to be heavily planted:)

    I heard of someone that kept a clown killifish in a 2.5

    The smallest is a 10, sadly.

    Oh I guess you shouldn’t believe everything you see on the internet! :)

    I once saw people recommending 10 guppies in a 1g..

    The internet is full of very bad advice unless you know where to look ;)

    I think that if you planted it then a couple of shrimp would look very nice :)
