Hey guys, i have a small 2.5 gallon tank that i have sitting around. I usually use it to temporarly raise fry, but i was thinking about setting it up more. What fish would be good to put in a small 2.5 gallon tank? Would endlers be an option?

THANKS!!!!!!! :)

Endlers are a bit big for a tank that size and would overstock it quickly. Heterandria formosa are nice for a small tank and many of the killies are bred in small tanks like that. Another option that many people follow for very small tanks is to raise cherry red shrimp or similar inverts. A single Betta splendens could also be kept in a small tank like that.

Perhaps a few White Cloud Mountain minnows (Tanichthys albonubes) would look do, or even a Mosquito fish (Gambusia affinis).

A single male betta or small inverts as oldman suggested would look absolutely great in that tank, however.

You could hold 4 or 5 endlers comfortably in a tank like that but a single fry drop will overpopulate it. If you went with all males you could get away with it though.
