nano fish tank ideas needed


Recommended Posts

I'm a first time nano tank owner, long time goldfish owner.

I'm looking to start a nano tank for in my dorm room. I have a strong filter, 5 gallon tank with a light and a heater.

I'm looking for a less common fish than a betta for my tank.

I was thinking one dwarf/pea puffer for in the tank. I know I would be live feeding and have the time to feed and do many water changes that comes with that. or a small amount of another type of fish if anyone has any ideas.

I plan to put a couple easy plants in the tank but not too many because I have minimal good experience with aquarium plants.

Does anyone have any tips for a beginner or any ideas to help me plan my tank? All ideas are welcome.

Thank you ahead of time to anyone who offers any ideas or tips.

How about a Shrimp tank. :)

Plants that would do good in there are Anibias, Ferns, moss balls. 

 

I was thinking about shrimps but I've had a hard time with them in the past. I have moss balls currently in my tank

I know not many fish can go into a 5 gallon but sadly that's as large as I can go :( so I'm just trying to come up with ideas that will make a decent tank and happy fish. I wasn't aware that there were freshwater clown fish. I thought all were saltwater

How about some Opae Ula aka super shrimp aka Hawaiian shrimp. I heard they're pretty sturdy and hard to kill.

I've never heard of them before. Do you know where you can get them in Canada?

You could do a Male Guppy tank. Meaning just one Male guppy. They are really nice fish to watch :) 

That could be really cool. I've currently got one female guppy but she's been with me for almost a year so I don't think she will be with me for much longer
