5 gal stocking ideas
So, my 5 gal is empty and I am thinking about what to stock it with. Would a female betta sorority or a two male bettas with a divider work? I'm open to any ideas you guys have as I fully trust you.

In my opinion it would not work with either option. A sorority needs at least a 10 and preferably a 20g. http://www.fishforums.com/forum/bett...rity-tank.html
And I don't think splitting a small 5g between two males is enough room for each. A 5 g would work for one male betta, or some shrimp.If it's called tourist season why can't I shoot them?
Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

Ok. Thanks for the info. Any other stocking ideas?

Shrimp, snails, and frogs are usually good companions for a betta (but some bettas are insane)
The only other fish types are microfish. And I mean truly micro...less than an inch usually.10 gallon with a veiltail betta, 7 neons, 1 ADF, and one neat moss ball.
20 gallon with 6 female black phantoms, and 1 schwartzi cory

Shrimp tank or microfish as mentioned are your best bets by far... With snails naturally.

My vote's for a single male betta. But then, I'm biased toward bettas ^_^;;;; Feel free to ignore me
