HI Chase, Happy early Birthday!
If those fish are in your 5 gallon, I'd definitely recommend upgrading them now before you run into some real problems like unstable water conditions, aggression and territorial issues.

Thanks guy and girl.lol.And also would this be a good buy off of craigslist for 30 gallon fish tank.here is what they said.


1st is a 30 gallon tank with lid ( some minor warping on the door of the lid ) needs a new bulb , has a bridge decoration ( 29.95 at petsmart beginning of fall ) gravel and a small plant ( fake ) the filter works great but you will need to replace the actual filters ( 6$ at walmart for 3 , you will need 2 for the initial start up ) I also have a heater and an aerator and if I'm not mistake it's a stone ( I will have to look to make sure ) I am asking 30$ for all of this and would possibly be willing to meet in Murfreesboro for 35$ total cost .

I got my 30 gallon for free at

Had to buy the filter and stuff as it was my first tank, but still a very good deal.
