New member with a quick question :)

Hi,

I just joined this site a couple of days ago. I have about 10 aquariums, all with plants, but am trying to set up an actual "planted tank." I am starting small - just a 2.5 gallon that I added another 3/4 gallon to by adding two small aquarium bowls upside down on top using vacuum suspension (or whatever it's called). Plants seem to be doing well so far. My LFS has some redfin mosquito rasboras that are very small. I was wondering if a) 3.25 gallons would be enough space for a few of these guys and b) if anyone has experience with the redfin mosquitoes specifically? So far, I haven't found much information on this type of rasbora out there.

Thanks, Jen

Personally I would keep shrimps in a 3,25 gallon. Yes you can put there fish in but the space is really small for them. Even for those tiny chili rasbora.

2.5 is veeeery tiny to do that in. I'm doing it in a 3.5g ad I feel I'm pushing it with that.

I mean, it would probably work just fine but I wouldn't expect the fish to live to their full life span and you'll probably need to keep a very close eye on parameters
