Sounds reasonable. I have no experience with them.Coradee said:Microdevario kubotai are incredibly active for their size, ime with them they make even a 3ft tank look too small for them, I'd have to say they're not suitable for a 5 gallon tank
Would you put ADFS in a five?Kaleb Rinehart said:
I don't know that I would add more, but the fact is those fish are so inactive it isn't even funny. Makes then a good fit for 5s. Those are on our list.Kaleb Rinehart said:I have 3 Asian stone catfish in a 5 gallon and they're doing quite well, I'm thinking about adding a couple more.
I know that's why I was considering adding a couple more. It's only them in the tank so it wouldn't be overstockedashenwelt said:I don't know that I would add more, but the fact is those fish are so inactive it isn't even funny. Makes then a good fit for 5s. Those are on our list.
I think thai micro crabs would be fineashenwelt said:
I have seen a lot of references to the pygmy sunfish. The western, on a male only, is to get some discussion on it. Thank you by the way for your input on it. I am currently thinking it shouldn't be there.BottomDweller said:
It seems fairly well recommended for 5s.BottomDweller said:I think thai micro crabs would be fine
Thank you for being a part of this. Its crowd sourcing in essence. The only opinion I have been bypassing is the one that says: "No fish can live in 5 gallons."BottomDweller said:I just want to say I think it's brilliant you're making this list. I'm setting up a 5 gallon soon and I'm probably just going to have a betta and invertebrates but you've given me a lot of ideas. Also I think it's great you're being open minded and taking everyone's opinions on board.
Those are on the list. This is am attempt to crowd source knowledge to build a list of which of our aquatic friends can happily survive in a 5 gallon aquarium.FishandFun said:I would do a betta with cherry and ghost shrimp.
Well, from actual experience and success owning embers, a 5 gallon will definitely work. I'd say 7-9 is a good number.ashenwelt said:Why not on the Embers? They honestly are probably the top schooling fish in a 5. The rest are like I said in the post... Debated. But normally Embers aren't.
Yep. Would you like to nominate any others? Current nomminies are:scarface said:Well, from actual experience and success owning embers, a 5 gallon will definitely work. I'd say 7-9 is a good number.
What about dwarf crayfish? Like 1 or 2 if well planted and alone.ashenwelt said:Hello team!
I have updated the list. This is a continued discussion, please ask anyone who should come and have information to come here.
Here are some more fish and invertebrates to consider. Please give feedback.
