    I wouldn't recommend having feeder goldfish in a 5 gallon. It's too small and feeder goldfish are quiet messy. They also get pretty big. A 5 gallon would be perfect for a betta fish

    I personally wouldn't even put a betta in anything less than a 10 gallon. Maybe some shrimp and snails?

    These are just some fish/amphibians that can live in your tank. Make sure you heat and filter your water and do lots of research before you get started.

    Good luck!

    A common goldfish needs a large pond. Fancy goldfish need 20g for the first, 10g each thereafter. Please do not house goldies in there. Sorry!

    I would house a Betta in the 5g, you could make a very nice home for him in there.x
