I have only used it for one fish at a time which isn't often but it is empty right now with the exception of a few plastic plants. Is the 5 gallon tank too small to put 5 juvenile Bolivian Rams in for a couple of weeks for quarantine purposes?
I also have a 10 gallon planted tank that is being kept cycled with a couple of small tetra fish in it but I didn't know if I could use a planted tank as a quarantine tank or not.
If the rams are very small ,the five gallon could work. I myself would prefer the 10gallon but if medicating becomes necessary, (hope not) then plants may take a hit.
