would you want to get a 20 to 30 gallon tank in the future? its just that a 1 gallon tank is a bit too small for any type of schooling fish :l

please watch and share with friends and family.

Honestly, I wouldn't even put one fish in a 1gl. Way too small.

i personally am highly against putting live creatures in a small containment...HOWEVER if its highly planted, i will ;D id say a betta would be ok... a mystery snail maybe? cherry shirmp are fun. ummmm as long as its heavily planted then i wouldnt mind putting one of these in. im actually getting ready to set up a 1 liter tank with a marimo ball carpet and a stick covered in christmas moss with crystal flating on the top with 1 cherry shrimp in it

ive never seen them at petsmart or petco. The only place ive ever seen them is the dallas world aquarium. They are really pricey (about 6-7$ each).
