Question 1.5L tank?

I am think about buying a 1.5L tank for my desktop. What fish could I put in it? It's freshwater, has a filter, and also a oxygen pump.

Hi Mallardman and welcome to TFK. One male or female betta is about all your tank size would house and at that you'd have to do very frequent water changes.

Have you considered a 2.5 gallon mini-bow tank? You can get these cheap on CL and I've been able to cycle all 6 of mine with no problem. That way you can do partial water changes about twice a week with no issues.

agree that a bigger tank would be better. There are very limited options for such a small tank. A betta, or a few shrimp would be ok

1.5L.. less then half a gallon. I dont think anyone would really recommend anything other then perhaps shrimp, or maybe a plant and/or some snails.

To have even one fish you're going to want at least a 2.5-3 gallon tank. Then you can add ONE fish such as a betta.

Yeah I just re-read the OP and realized that it's litres.

Sorry but too small unless you want to change the water every day. Bigger is better :)

I agree. I would not subject any fish to that small a space.

1.5l is too small even for shrimp IMO. Best would be as a snail breeding tank, or just a planted tank with no fauna...
