When Populating a Small Tank, Find the Right Fish

If Flipper was in your bathtub, neither of you would enjoy the experience. The same is true if you have a small fish tank.

Points to remember when buying fish for a small tank:

The smaller your fish tank is the smaller the fish you purchase should be. This is because the size of your fish tank governs the size of the fish when it is full-grown that will thrive in it. This is why you need to think about what species are the right fish for a small tank

Take into consideration the amount of water it takes to fill the tank. A tank that contains one gallon of water will support a total quantity of an inch (the size of your thumb) of fish. By quantity, we mean the actual number of fish not the fish size.

There would be less fish needed, since spacing is valuable in a small tank. To determine this all that you need to do is watch and see how many fish are in your tank and then use common sense in picking the fish for a small tank.

Regardless of what you may have heard. A Goldfish is not a fish for a small tank. This type of fish actually needs approximately twenty gallons per fish because of all the waste it produces. You will want to study up on the different species but here are a few suggestions of fish for a small tank. Guppies, Bettas, Cyprinids, Tetras, Platy or Catfish are good choices. It should be noted however that if you get a Betta, only purchase one male as it is very territorial, and if placed with another of it's species it will fight until one of the opponents dies. An enjoyable way to exercise a Betta and provide you with some amusement is place a mirror in the tank. The Betta will take an aggressive posture and try to fight, as it believes it is another Betta infringing on its territory. A word of caution however, because of the aggressive nature if you do not remove the mirror the Betta will continue to fight with it and possible stress itself to death. In your research of fish for a small tank, choose species that are compatible with each other. In most cases, two or three species should be sufficient, as it is imperative that each fish has its own area in your tank.

Getting the right fish for a small tank is not the only issue you need to consider for your fish tank. Knowing what you need for maintaining the species has to be a consideration also. Some things to consider are a tank cover (you do not want to lose a fish because it jumped out of the tank), heating element, lighting, filters, plants and gravel. Your fish tank should not be in direct sunlight.

Getting fish for a small tank and enjoying them is just a matter of finding the correct species; do not over crowd and getting the correct equipment through research.
