What to put in my 5.5 gallon??
My sister's DP died a couple days ago, so I'm looking for something new to get her for the 5.5 gallon tank. My ADF is already in there. I cannot keep another fish that requires live food. It was just too much of a hassle to drive 30 minutes every week to buy the puffer live bloodworms, because he wouldn't eat anything else (not even frozen). I was thinking maybe a trio of guppies or glofish. I've also heard that there are some killies that can be kept in 5.5 gallons, but I don't know much about them or their feeding requirements. I would prefer something other than a betta. The tank is way overfiltered and I do good sized water changes on it twice a week.
Any suggestions? I'd love some input. :D

I would recomend the glofish i saw them and am also thinking of doing a 5 gallon glofish tank. They are so neat make sure to get a blacklight they have like 10 in a 15 gallon at my LFS with a blacklight and its crazy cool

I vote guppies for sure, I love their personalities and they are always at the glass trying to get your attention. I don't know, they are just cool.

If I were to do glofish, how many could I comfortable fit in the tank? How about guppies? Is 3 too many, or could I fit 5? I've never kept either, so I don't know how much strain they put on the system.

It depends, I would say max 5 if you had good filtration and 3-4 if filtration could be better.

Glofish=genetically modified danios...not something I'd even keep in a 10 gallon since they have the same nutso personality as the danios

Ya, I knew they were danios. I've never kept danios before, so I don't know much about them. Thanks for the heads up, I'll go with something else.
My sister just found out today that Topaz is no longer with us... :(

Ruh roh....you could make a cherry shrimp tank. They're kinda fun to watch as long as they have a lot of plants to cling to. Not very messy either so you don't have to change as much water...you just have to be careful not to gravel vac them up :)

How would they do with my frog? He tends to think anything red is food, since the frozen bloodworms he eats are red... lol
