    So with this 3-5gallong tank Im not sure of the size, you guys think it'd be ok to add maybe 3 neon tetras I know it's an inch per gallon but i've read somewhere that with good filtration and the plants you can get away with maybe one or two more fish than normal.

    Tetras do best in larger groups, 10 or more....personally, the only fish I'd try (in a 5 gallon) is a single betta....if it's smaller than 5G, I wouldn't put fish in that tank.

    Yup, be careful with it, it will grow into a monster if you let it, very little right now though...

    I agree with Mr. Slap, too small for tetras and if its under 5 gallons then no for a betta. 3 gallons is good for the shrimp, and they are a lot of fun too, just got some recently am not sure why I waited so long.

    You can move it over if you want, or you can just start a new tank and add to your collection. If you move it over I would recommend a fishless cycling the new tank first so that the new filter has the bacteria already stocked, then you just add new fish and the old shrimp (or not depending on the fish you get).

    If I buy say a 10 gallon tank and a filter that will take the already established cartridge I wouldn't have to wait long for it to cycle right cause I'd just be putting all the BB in the new tank. I have a tetra whisper in the 3 gallon but if I went with the marineland 75 I thinks there's enough space to put the new cartridge and the old one

    For hang-on-back (HOB) filters, I wouldn't spend money on anything but an AquaClear

    Ditch cartridges, and use media that YOU choose

    If you can find them any of the Dario species would work. They stay around one inch with a personality like a cichlid. One or two would work I would think. I have very little experience with them but they didn't seem difficult.
