  1. Default Wall Mounted Aquarium?

    0 Not allowed!
    Recently I have been looking into purchasing a 5 gallon vertical wall mounted aquarium. First off I was wondering if these aquariums are even good for fish? And second if I do get one what would be some fish to put in it? I am looking for more smooth free floating fish. No tetras or fast darting fish. Any advice is welcome. Thanks

    I think they are simply horrible. They are like 3-4" wide is all. Fish can't even swim around, just go back and forth in a line.

    All right then. Would a porthole semi-sphere wall mounted one be better or would that be just as bad?

    5 gallons is not suitable for anything but a betta. It will also need to be heated and filtered. In my opinion, tanks can be great decor, but the welfare of the fish should be first priority.

    Could still work with some coloured shrimp.
    3 potted plants and 6 strings of plastic do not make a planted tank!
