    I'm having a tank just to practice aquascaping and to grow Java Moss and I want to put at least a little light. No filter, no heater. Ideas for some fish?

    With no heater and no filter, you have very few options. What size is the tank going to be?

    EDIT: With it being 5 gallons, no heater, no filter, you have no options for fish. You can try shrimp or snails if you have enough plants. If you add a sponge filter, you could do a single Betta but thats about it.

    If it's heavily planted, you can try shrimp.

    With only 5 gallons, no heater and no filter, there's basically nothing you can do in terms of fish.

    I wouldn't add any fish. The only thing I would add would be some shrimp and snails.

    Yeah, bettas are happier with filters and heaters tmk. If I were you and the tank was heavily planted, I'd do a shrimp tank. :)

    Could I put in RCS? The tank would just be a mass of Java moss

    Yes you can put RCS

    Agreed, no fish. I would do RCS.
