Fast moving top dwelling FW fish for a 5.5 gal...
I was wondering...
What are some Faster moving top of the tank dwelling fish for a 5.5 gal?
Id like to know how many i could house in there?
Fast moving? I don't think so. The only fish I know that can be housed in a tank like that are slow and sedate fish. Nothing fast moving is going to want to be in a space that small.
Well, they dont actually have to be fast moving.
Just smaller? I like the look of a small school of fish...
What types of fish could i put in a 5.5?
Tis what i figured. What about a 14 gallon? How many schooling fish can i put in there?
And what kind of fish could i put in a 5.5?
You could do a small school of embers tetras, or some other fish that grows to 0.5-0.75 inches, in the 5.5 gallon. Absolutely nothing over an inch long, though.
14 gallons is still pretty small, so I would stick to the nano fish in that tank as well - nothing over 2 inches.
Most of the tetras and small barbs tend to be middle swimmers. I'm not really familiar with top dwelling schooling fish.
Really the only things suitable for a 5.5 are a betta fish or a dwarf puffer fish.
