    Hello, everyone! My Betta fish died 3 days ago..I had him for almost 2 years and he died due to the dropsy syndrome :(. However, I really enjoyed having him like my baby. I'm looking forward to buy a new fish. But I'm not an expert about where should I buy him/her? And also I will like to have 2 fishes in the same aquarium. Which type of fish will you recommend me?
    Thank you!

    What size tank do you have? The type of fish will depend on the size. I would recommend online, but if money is an issue, try finding a local pet store. If there is truly no other options, then go for a petco or petsmart. Be sure to keep your tank cycling though. You can add some fish food now if you don't have pure ammonia.

    My tank is 2 gallons. Honestly, with my last Betta I loved him but you really need to take care of them. So, i was thinking about a type of fish that is not too delicate to care of. Since, I'm a student.

    Unfortunately, I don't believe that there's a fish other then a betta fish that will be able to live in a 2 gallon tank. But what I think you should do is more decor. Or I am not certain but you could try neon tetras.

    Neon tetras wouldn't be suitable either.

    If you don't like shrimp, what about a few nerite snails?

    Neon tetras need much more space. They're a schooling fish so you will need a group of 6, ideally 12. They're also quite sensitive to poor water conditions, can die easily in a bit of an ammonia spike

    Only shrimp in a 2 gallon, sorry. No way around it. I've kept bettas in smaller tanks than that, but it was a weird situation.
