What have you kept in 1.50g?


I know most fish lovers don't want any fish in a 1.501.75g tank.

But what have you successfully kept in a planted, room temp, unfiltered mini tank?

Neocaridina, but those are shrimpies. If your house stays warm, a betta or one of the small gouramis might work.

I would advise you to do a shrimp only tank since 1.5g is almost nothing for a fish. But as stated above you could do a betta.

I've personally tried to keep dwarf gourami and a betta in a small tank like that.

Learn from my experiences... Do a shrimp tank.

I'm not a fan of betta in less than 5g tanks, they love to swim.

Maybe a cool snail or two, they're very relaxing to watch, low maint, and usually doesn't bother anything

I've kept snails in a 2 gallon bowl. I wouldn't put any fish in there though.

I have successfully kept shrimp. As other said, I personally wouldn't keep fish in something that small.
