    yup. i took a gamble and was ready to abort at any time by rehoming whomever was acting up. luckily it worked out. nitrates are always low because of WCs and the plants help, i figure. plus the shrimp keep it sparkling clean. everyone behaves normally and peacefully. the only thing the betta gets aggressive toward is his own reflection haha.

    excited to see what this 10gal turns into. like some say, a well-working, harmonious, and great looking smaller tank is much more of a challenge than a big one.

    Sorry about the dog, I have briggitaes in a 10g, and they are a great little fish. I have a school of 10, but I'm sure I could do more too

    Great suggestions here! I really like what everyones bringing to the table. Glad im not the only one "stupid" enough to consider small tanks lol... I even have 2 GBR males in a 5 gal with 2 females on the way. They have their own side and dont fight 1 bit. If I can get a pair or two out of it, Ill consider it a success. And I have many options to move around.

    I think you are playing with fire there lol... my males are find until a female comes along, then they have issues... I would have another tank ready just encase this doesn't work out...

    But I am loving having smaller tanks. That is why the "wall" I am planning has the largest tank at 30g.

    While maintenance is a bit trickier, the costs are much less and building a micro aquarium i think is more challenging

    Eh I have 39 tanks outside of the one they are in... all larger than the 5. They have been here for over a year. I have always used smaller tanks to pair fish. I keep up with the filtration and maintenence and provide a good enviroment. Also its my work tank so I see it 6 times a week for 9 hours.


    Also once a pair does form, I will be removing the excess to other means.

    Also let me add a disclaimer: Unless experienced with cichlids and knowing signs of aggression, I would not recommend anyone duplicate what I am doing. I have a good handle on what works and what doesnt and got lucky with mild tempered fish.
