New 5 gallon for my little guy

  1. zinnaerris Member Member

    My little gourami is getting picked on so my husband and I got him this little tank just for him. I took some filter media from my established tank and added it to the new tank filter. Hopefully it should be stable enough for him to go into his new home in a day or so.

    Sorry to say this, but 5 gallons is too small to humanely keep a fish.

    Even if he is sickly and being picked on? a 5 gallon set up is the best I can afford at the moment. The gourami is roughly an inch long. He has not grown at all since I got him a month and a halfish ago. Finally his color is coming out now.

    That tank can house him for awhile. But soon he will have to go into a bigger tank as said before. Use that tank for some Guppys or some Neon tetras they would look great with at decorations you have. Nice build. Thanks

    Yeah i planned on just keeping him in there until he got bigger so he could go back to the other tank. Hes not grown at all since we got him a month and a halfish ago.
