    Hi guys, I've purchased my little brother a small tank for him to start off with, hes only seven so I didn't want to start him off with a bigger more expensive tank, in case he loses interest. Its about a 5 gallon tank and I'm just wondering what anyone can suggest as the best fish to stock the tank with? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot!

    shrimp, snails, croaking gourami, or betta(of course not all together).
    be sure to look up the size and care requirements of all of your stock
    as well as cycle the tank.

    Gourami or betta for sure. Though due to the size of the tank, snails may not survive in it as they are more sensitive to water readings.

    10 gallon tank - Sephiroth (obtained 01/01/18). 1 algae eating shrimp, 1 established anubias plant on rock, sponge filter and heater

    Thanks guys! Just out of curiosity how well do you think guppies would do and how many? I've never cared for guppies before so I don't have any experience with them.

    They are pretty small but they are more active than the gouramis. Males will bicker and chase each other around, as well as chase the females whenever they aren't chasing another male or begging for food. There fore they may need a bit more room than a five gallon.

    No Message - korith   Just a 'Thank you' penguin to a water treatment guy :-D. Clean water and sanitiation is a CORNERSTONE of modern civilization that people take for granted and don't think twice about & I felt that way about it before I had fish lol. Thanks to my HS Hi - 850R   because I LOL'ed at your single neon 90 gal show fish - ddavis1979   For the help on CO2 and plants - Greentoads41   Great looking tank you have! - ~firefly~

    I think a group of endlers would look good in a 5g tank with a marimo ball or java moss.
