  1. Default Is there any coldwater fish/animals that can live in a 2.5G tank

    I was wondering if there was anything that could go into a 2.5G tank? And live in treated cold water (no heater needed)

    thanks!

    RIP Shark Bait, my Red Tail Shark :(

    probably not. Maybe a few snails.

    The problem with a tank that small is that it's going to be very prone to fast temperature changes, which would be stressful to whatever you put in there. It's too small for just about any fish except possibly a betta (which would need a heater). Shrimp would work but they're sensitive to temperature changes - lots of small shrimp tanks get wiped out that way.

    So, that doesn't leave many options.
    300 gallon mega tank: sailfin pleco, clown loaches, silver dollars, roseline sharks, congo tetras
    75 gallon community tank: black skirt tetras, danios, bronze corys, harlequin rasboras, otos, bristlenose and bulldog plecos, assassin snails, red cherry shrimp, bamboo shrimp
    60 gallon goldfish tank: fancy goldfish

    true thanks, I have a 2.5G in my house that I might do something with.

    But I'm leaving it at home (compared to taking it to school with me) so I wanted low maintenance

    Throw you loose change in it. Or stick a flower in it. No heater or filter needed.

    A smaller tank, BTW will not be low maintenance - when I first became involved in this forum, I learned right away that the smaller the tank, the more maintenance is needed because waste products build up much faster so water needs to be changed more frequently.

    +1 with Lady Hobbs

    Agreed! +1 to both Lady Hobbs and andreahp. I have a betta in a 2.5- and will be moving him up to the 5.5 gal soon as the 2.5 is just too small, and water changes are rather frequent. Maybe make it a small plant planter- or a heck of an ant farm if you could seal the top!

    white cloud mountain minnows are small but they're active. They need room to swim. Minimum tank size is usually stated to be 10 gallons.

    Red cherry shrimp would work as long as the temperature change isn't too drastic and not too cold. Where would this tank be located and by cold water, what temperature range do you mean?
