Should I or nah? Betta, tetras and guppies
So, I have a 3 gallon 360 tank from Walmart. I have found a few facts on this but, can I put a male betta, a few tetras, and a few guppies in that tank together? Will they fight or anything along the lines of that. I will say thanks to the people that answer this in advance.
3 gallons imo is barely big enough for a Betta, so the answer is no to adding tetras & guppies with it.
Should I or nah
No,1 guppy OR 1 betta will fully stock it. You coup do a shrimp tank.
with love and fish
Id say to many.
Just a betta and maybe one other
I'd only add the betta. 3 gallons is a bit small to add anything else. Even in a larger tank, guppies generally don't work with the betta because, to the betta, the guppies look bettas and the betta could kill them. The tetras won't work either because they're active and schooling fish, so the tank is too small for them as well.
Like guppybreeder said, you could do a shrimp tank. Or maybe even risk adding a few shrimp to your betta tank, but there may be a chance that the betta will eat the shrimp.
If you're going to get a betta, you'll also need a heater and a thermometer (which I don't think comes with the tank)
do the betta by itself or the shrimp tank really there's no other option when dealing with a three gallon tank. Bettas and guppies don't get along for what's mentioned above. best bet is betta by hisself or herself. or the shrimp.
Neons will destroy each other when cramped or unhappy. Guppy fins would be a nice big target for fin nippers. Neons are schooling fish and should be in a 10 gallon minimum. Guppies should be in bigger tanks as well, they're very active fish.
3g is really only suited for 1 betta fish or a few shrimp.
3 gallon tank isn't suitable for anything IMO. People gonna do what people want to do.
I was talking to someone on here and they said they had their betta eith ADF and they were fine.
I was told they leave eachother alone.
But I have no experience with bettas.
Just the ADF.
Well all I know is the guppies and tetras act like they love it plus my friend had the same guppies and tetras for 5 months and she hasn't had any problems
My little boy HenrI gets along fine with my betta.
As a general rule, they don't. Adfs need a much larger tank anyway and prefer to live in groups.
There is no Guppy or tetra suitable to a 3 gallon tank. In this tank your options are limited to a betta, shrimp, or a few select hard to keep nanofish such as scarlet badis or pea puffers
As most of the members mentioned above. A 3 gallon isn't quite big enough for other fish. A single betta or some shrimp can be suitable for the tank.
Also can you post s pic?
I really don't think a three gallon tank is suitable for even a betta. Bettas have wonderful personalities, but they can be stressed and sick in tanks less than ten gallons. I would've used that as a shrimp tank, maybe. I don't even know why pet stores sell such small tanks.
