I agree with all that you say about the tank. I too love the design for showcasing smaller fish .. like fancy guppies. The tank size is perfect for them and extremely attractive.

5 gallons is way to smal for guppies. The only fish that can be kept in a 5 gallon is a betta. Please learn more about fishkeeping before getting involved.

Guppies do fine in 5 gal. as long as they are not over crowded .. like a male and a few females for breeding. I have been into two top guppy breeders facilities in my area and several of their tanks are either 10 gal or 5 gal. even some 2 1/2 for fry tanks.

5 gallons are too small unless you plan to remove the fry as they mature. It is possible to keep guppies in small breeder tanks for the purpose of breeding and trading, not for long term use. The juveniles will develop well in a crowded tank if the fry are left to mature with the parents, they must be removed after a few weeks and separated so unless you plan to have a lot of guppies, i would avoid mixing the males and females in a small tank. You can showcase a couple of guppies in a 5g as they are not super demanding fish, but you must keep up with water changes and ensure that the water quality is good and stable.
