    So everytime I go to the store, which has been about 12 times in 9 days now, this 2.5g tank keeps begging me to buy it. The problem is I have no idea what to put in it. So how about we make a thread where people post their 2.5g set ups and list what is in them. I have seen this for 10 & 20 gallons but I have not seen this thread for a 2.5g.
    Chances are, this thread will convince me to use a 2.5 as a quarantine tank and I am ok with that.

    Just a male betta. It's heated and filtered. I made a video about it. It's on my YouTube channel as well.

    For a 2.5 gallon you could do a betta, dwarf shrimp, and/or snail tank. I personally have some blue shrimp now in a ten gallon along with nerite snails and they are so fun to watch. Shrimp are full of activity always swimming around, eating, and well being lively.

    Honestly its personal preference but i don't like to keep betas in less than 5 gallons.
    2.5 gets pretty small, less room for a beta to explore and be free.

    Also the water is difficult to manage. A small imbalance will have a large impact in a small tank

    I'm back and forth on that myself. Then again my own betta was stressed out in a five gallon (had the stress stripes and everything). She wasn't okay until I put her in a ten gallon, which I simply moved the filter and decor from the five to the ten gallon.
