Hello, Been a long time since Iposted here.
Anyways, I am looking for a 5-7 gallon fish tank. as this is for a drom room. So when I move it it wond be too heavy when filled with water. What kind of fish would be best suited for a tank this size? neons? I know this is digressing but do half gallon tanks exist? what kinds of fish could I put in that?

I thank you for your reply,

RE: Fish tank

You can house a single male betta in a 1/2 gallon jar, but that would be pretty cruel. Try for a 2-1/2 gallon aquarium you can get at PetSmart.

Any aquarium would be very heavy when filled with water.

You can house fish such as a couple of guppies, mollies, and a few neon tetra's in a 5 to 7 gallon tank. Make sure you get proper water conditioners and a good heater to keep your fish warm.

Hope this helps.
