Fathead minnow tank.

fishrfriendsnotfood

So I’ve been thinking about keeping a native species for a while and I was curious how many (if any) fathead minnows you’d put it a (almost) five gallon tank. I know they’re kept in absolutely atrocious overcrowding at bait shops and maybe living in five gallons with just five friends is better than 30 gallons with 30,000. Also my tank is taller than wide and pictured below

I would say to get a larger tank -- maybe 10 gallons -- and a group of 5 or 6. Fathead minnows are awfully cute and not too big, but they are very active, in my experience. More room is better.
