I kepp guppies, they do need a filter, and you can't keep more than one male together in that small of a tank cuz they will harrass eachother. If you would like fish for the tank other that bettas, ou could try lesser killifish maybe? You could also get away with some ghost shrimp with no filter. They are really interesting, and only like 37 cents!

26 cents here.

Ok so i got a 2 gallon filtered heatered tank, (actually it was a kit ... $16 brand new! but i have to exchange it for another one, so put off for a few days... same set up, just a different one b/c it was missing part of the lid)

I would love! to have a black mollie, but i am pretty sure they need more room...

hmmm i will have to think about it. I have till march 4th

btw, if i do have guppie babies, is there a way to get rid of them? i don't want to end up with thousands of guppies and nothing to do with them. will people take them off craigslist? i would like to get money for them, but don't expect to, rather expect to just give them away...

Most guppies just eat their babies. In a two gallon heated I'd get three male guppies or 2 male guppies and some ghost shrimp.

In a 2 gallon I would do a small shoal of Boras Merah, Microrasbora, etc, and plant in. Get a few Cherry Shrimp. And you have one pretty tank.

If you are dead set on guppies, I wouldn't do more than 2. That is pushing it. Heck, I wouldn't even do more than 1.

I doubt you would get money on guppies... anywhere. They are the most common fish available You would even have problems getting rid of them. The Ghost shrimp would help on population cut, though.

Black mollies get way too big and make way too much waste.

Hmm, i guess guppies may not work, though i love the fancy guppies :( i kinda like the microasbora though...

i think i may have also just picked up a 3 gallon tank on craigslist... if i am able to get it, i think i will put a betta in it, and if the filter is to strong just turn it off, shouldn't be a problem...

Eh figured so, didn't set my heart on it...

I the filter is too strong, then look up the Red Sea Nano Filter/Azoo Palm Filter. They are small filters for tanks up to 5 gallons, and have very low flow. My sister has one in her betta tank (technically mine because I do the work, but who cares. lol) and it works very well.

And make sure you get a heater.

yea except now she said it isn't a 3 gallon probably a 2. but still be better than what i have them in now. I can't decide to move sushi or Surimi over. Sushi is like 3 times his size, but seems happy where he is.
surimi is small (about the size of a female) is really skittish, but i don't know if it would be better to move him or not... if it would help at all...? oh well ill figure something out
