Stock my 5 gallon!

Mii

i have an empty 5 gallon and am open to suggestions! also make sure it takes dried or frozen food because i don't want to deal with live.
EDIT: i know shrimp and inverts can be pretty cool but i really want a FISH.

Wait, you can try a Thai micro crab species only tank! With some amano shrimp and dense vegetation

That would be really unique

I used to have a betta.

Shrimp are cool, but i really want a fish in this one. Maybe a fish and some shrimp if there's room, i know shrimp have a very low bioload.

I personally think that a 5 gallon is too small, with the amount of energy they have. A 10 gallon would be better for them, also taking into consideration that they should be in groups of 8 or more to really thrive, as they live in groups of thousands in the wild.

It is true that a 10 gallon would be the better choice, but I believe that they can also be kept in a 5 gallon. Given that a 5 gallon is 16"x8"x10" and these guys max out at around 1", a school of them should do just fine in a 5 gallon.

I’ve seen them in stores before and I think they’re too active. For a school of 6 or more a 10g would be best and would make them feel a lot more comfortable.
