Hexagonal dispute -.-
Hey all!!
I have a 15 gal hexagon and I've been wondering what to stock in it cause of its awkward shape and size, can anyone give me suggestions as what to put in it? Anything but a planted tank cause I already have one :p so something different would be nice :)

Can anyone give me a suggestion as what I can put in this tank? Thanks for all help!!

A Mosquito Rasbora species tank :) If it were me that's what I'd do! haha.

I have 8 asst'd in my 75 gallon. They don't get lost at all. Get em in groups of 3 min for a sense of security.

It's more tall than wide so finding the right fish is indeed hard. Most fish need room to swim, i.e. horizontal space.... I thinik I would stick a Betta in it... don't believe in tiny tanks for them... but that's JMO. What is the area or dimensions? sorry I can't see the prev posts now that I'm typing. lol.

As you can see from the pictures of my aquarium non rectangular tanks can be interesting aswell, the depth is the only slight issue for maintainance issues, to just hoover my gravel i have to remove anything up to 40 litres. Choice wise keep the fish of small size and shoalers, maybe try some shrimp in to keep the bottom clean. Always a Betta aswel there personalities are something to behold

Haha okay well most of you suggested bettas so I guess that is the best choice :) so how many do I get? Just like one ? Or a few females? I never had a betta so any ideas? Decoration wise and stocking :)

And jw otherwise if some fancy goldfish? Like black moor or bubble eyed ones? Jw jw :p ?

Goldfish need large tanks. A 15g hex would be like a closet for even the smallest goldfish. A betta may work, but due to the fact they need air most of that space is going to be wasted. Personally I would cram a 12lb sledge hammer into it, alternatively a few neon tetras or dwarf rasbora may work.

Ya that's what I was thinking, like it would have lots of open space and kinda a waste of a tank :p but I really want a betta cause BETTAS ARE AWSOME! :p but I was thinking maybe a few African dwarf frogs? And some type of small shrimp colony? Like ghost shrimp or something :p and maybe a trio of plates? Or what about sailfin mollies? They sometime are huge but there colours are astonishing!! Any ideas?

Awww... it's 15 gallon so yes a Betta can go in it... ONLY ONE MALE ever in any tank. They fight to the death. Some poor Bettas only get 1 or 2 gallons so I don't think you need to store a Sledge hammer in it... lol... tho I did laugh out loud.
Betta's need their own kind of food and a heater tho. He will come see you when you look into the tank... There is a Betta section in here so click on some of the Betta threads to see what some members in here have. there are several species... reg, crown tail, half moon... etc.
