No! The tank needs to be much much bigger, at least a twenty gallon. By the way, box turtles also require both land and water. I would also suggest not keeping them together, as the turtle may or may not try to eat the beta fish.
The main thing to make sure about getting new tankmates is that they won't cause harm to the fish and vice versa. Here are some possible things you could put in the 5-gallon tank (including your fish): 2-3 more female bettas 2-3 corydora catfish 3-4 tetras (neon, silver tip, etc) 2-3 platies (micke…y mouse, etc) 2 oto cats 2-3 African dwarf frogs (NOT AFRICAN CLAWED FROG) 2-3 guppies (NOT FANCY) ( Full Answer )
A 5 gallon tank is great for one betta fish. If you would like more than 1, then you would be best to get either a tank that is pre-made with dividers, or a 10 gallon and buy dividers to add to it.
Full or empty? If empty, about 20 - 25 lb. If full, about 260 lb.
That depends on where you are getting it from. A 5 gal tank is pretty small. At a garage sale you could pick one up second hand for cents. Try googling "buy fish tank" in your area and check for sale and wanted adds in the classifieds.. I personally wouldn't pay more than $5.00 for one.
Water,the fish tank,and alot of room so the fish can have room to swim around in.
Depends on what material the tank is made of, glass, plexi-glass, wood? What are the thickness of these materials?
\nDepends on the size of the fish, maybe very small fish could. But a shark couldn't.
Empty, probably around 30-50 pounds (guessing) -- Full with ONLY water, it will weigh about 850 pounds. Full with water, gravel, and decorations, it will weigh more.
Well yes, you can but only if it is little,, because I have two a big one and a little one. The smaller one is in a five gallon tank but eventually they get big so they will need to be moved into a bigger tank, but if you have a small one then it should be fine for the time being.
NONE! ZERO! NADA! Never put chlorine in your fish tank. You want to remove chlorine from your tap water before using it in your tank.
5 gallons is not much, and you will need to take care not to overstock this tank, and to keep on top of your maintenance. It's definitely possible to have a nice nano tank, but it requires more work than a larger tank - I spend more time fussing over my 6 gal planted nano than my 22 gal brackish com…munity.. Suitable fish must obviously remain very small, and also be content without a huge amount of swimming room. Here's a list of species:. Sparkling gourami . Dwarf puffer (ONE PER TANK and no tankmates - aggressive) . Betta (Siamese Fighting Fish) - one male, or divide the tank for two males . Badis/chameleon fish (Badis badis) hard to find but a real gem . Ember tetra . Boraras brigittae (has a lot of common names, usually Brigitte's Rasbora) . Any microrasbora species . Celestial pearl danio . Spotted blue eye (Pseudomugil gertrudae) . Honey blue eye (Pseudomugil mellis) . Delicate blue eye (Pseudomugil tenellus) but only these three blue eye species . Threadfin rainbowfish (Iriatherina werneri) . Otocinclus catfish - VERY DELICATE, experienced aquarist only . Pygmy corydoras (Corydoras habrosus, C. hastatus, C. pygmaeus) . Freshwater shrimp or snails . Paradise fish (for a coldwater tank) ONE ONLY - fight like bettas. . The tiny catfish Hara jerdoni (expensive!) . Please do your research on any of these species before you make your mind up - some of them are known in the hobby as 'difficult' and others require special care and consideration.. I also have 5 glo light tetras in my five gallon and they are very happy as long as you replace 25 % of the water twice a week ( Full Answer )
\nDepending on weather or not you have filtration will be the key to your answer.\n. \nIf you do not have filtration on a 1 gallon tank, a Betta will be the only acceptable fish to place in your tank. Although many people have given several different kinds of fish from goldfish to Molly's alive and… happy without filtration, it is definitely not recommended. Also you will want to change your Betta's water on a regular basis with treated tap water or R/O water. If you do have filtration on your tank, here is the best answer.\n. \n2 inches of ADULT fish per gallon. So you do not want to have more than 2 inches of adult fish. One 2 inch goldfish would be all you should keep BUT 4 or 5 Neon Tetra's,or 3 or 4 Glowfish would equal about 2 inches. You cant just go by the length because some fish have larger bodies and thus creating more waste. \n. \nHope this helped you out !! ( Full Answer )
Yes it is. And make sure they like each other because they fight till one dies even with a girl. I know. I have one.
That all depends on how big the fish are. The rule is "1 inch of fish needs a minimum of 1 gallon of water". The tank could easilly be overcrowded if it is stocked with large cichlids and understocked (if there is such a thing) if the fish are Neon Tetras.
Provided the tank is heated and filtered and you do a regular 50% water change every week I would suggest you have a couple of Guppies or Platys to a total of not more than 4 inches in body length.
1 US Gallon of water weighs 8.35 lbs. The tank will not be filled to the brim so you can deduct about 0.5 gallons from its maximum capacity. So the weight of the water would be 8.35lbs x 4.50 which is 37.5lbs. You would also have to weigh the tank and other things like lights, cover glass, heater/th…ermostat, thermometer, filter complete with media, and gravel etc. Everything that you use in the tank must be weighed and added to the water weight to obtain an accurate total weight.

small goldfish would be my guess, but it depends on alot of things, like how long you want them to live, how many you want, what your time frame is to take care of them and feed them, how much work & effort your willing to put into them, all that good stuff. :)
If you are referring to Air pumped from an "aerator' Then the answer is "none". A filter is needed not an air pump.
a good rule is to use a pound of substrate per gallon of water in any aquarium
The range varies due to the amount of "stuff" that comes with it. Usually buying from local fish stores includes extra items that help start the aquarium. From Petsmart: http://www.petsmart.com/search/index.jsp?kwCatId=2767036&kw=40&origkw=40&sr=1 These include a hood (either a just a light or a fil…tration system and light) and possibly some other items. All around $250 USD. Another option, easier and cheaper; buy one used from craigslist, ebay, garage sale, etc. These aquariums (if they were used for housing fish) already have essential bacteria many fish and live plants need to survive. Don't worry about it being "icky" give it a good warm water clean and a soft scrub, most of the bad bacteria will leave and the good bacteria will still be there, waiting for your new fish. Usually people are wanting to get rid of their aquarium, hood, decor, stand, filter, and any other goodies for cheap. Some people realize they are not a fish hobbyist after they've purchased a big expensive system, or they've moved up. I've found 55 gallon set-ups for $50 before in a newspaper. Good luck! And remember, bigger aquariums are easier to take care of (and often more rewarding) than smaller ones. So if given a choice, go bigger (but 40 gallons are fairly big anyway)! ( Full Answer )
Remove some water using a gravel washer, then replace. I suggest no more than 2 gallons at a time.
Simple Formula One gallon weighs roughly 8.2 lbs. So if you have a 27 gallon multiply the 2 numbers. I usually round the 8.2 up to 10 since if you add sand/gravel rock or wood to a tank it will also add to total weight. So tank plus water plus filters and accesories put it well over 300 lbs all toge…ther. ( Full Answer )
5 ft x 2 ft x 22 ft = 220 cubic feet= 1646 US gallons
The African dwarf frog can indeed live with fish in a five gallonaquarium. BUT BEWARE!!! dwarf frogs may eat your fish small enoughto fit in it's mouth. so i recommend Platy and live-bearers ascompanions.
yes. 3 or 4 neon tetras can live in a 5 gallon tank. they are also fairly cheap.Type your answer here...
A good rule of thumb is one small tetra, like a neon tetra per oneUS gallon of water. Keeping a small fish tank, especially a tropical tank is much moredifficult than maintaining a large tank. A small tank has smallamount of water and because it is such a small amount, any type ofchange will happen …to the entire tank quickly, especially atemperature change. Consider getting a fish tank that is at least20 gallons or more. ( Full Answer )
Firstly, for you, I'd recommend you get a 10 gallon. They're not that much bigger, or more expensive, and you can have lots of different fish. However you asked about a 5 gallon tank. I assume you are hooking the tank up with a heater and filter, if you're not than you better do that. You could prob…ably have a Betta, a few invertebrates (freshwater of course), and a few live plants. Or you could put in one or two dwarf gouramis; you could also do two danios or glofish, plus 1 shrimp for both. I recommend the Betta though because of its different colors and ease of keeping when kept in a HEATED and FILTERED tank, PET STORES! ( Full Answer )
It is not recommended to keep fish in such a small tank but you could but small fish in such as neon tetras, cardinal tetras, firework rasboras, 2 dwarf gouramis (but can die of indrovirus which you cant cure) you should ask your local fish shop for any other fish that could go in but stick to the o…nes that stay small and don't grow very big. All these are tropical fish. Goldfish and Marines need a larger tank as Goldfish can grow quite big. ( Full Answer )
When the tank is filled it will not be to the brim so it will only hold about 3.5 or at most 4 gallons. Your tank will hold a maximum of 3 inches of fish provided you follow the rules . The basic rules of fish keeping state 1 inch of fish needs a minimum of 1 gallon of water. Every tank needs a perm…anently running cycled filter. Every tank need at least 50% of its water changed every week. Follow those rules and your fish stand a chance of survival. Fail to follow those rules and I can guarantee failure. Read more with he link provided below ------- Also a 50% weekly water change is in excess of what is needed if properly filtered and can actually cause more harm than good by removing too much of the good bacteria and resetting your tank cycle. Unless over stocked 25% a month on most species is acceptable amount to remove waste and add back depleted levels of chemicals. ( Full Answer )
It is said 1 inch of fish per square inch of SURFACE area of the tank. More than this can overload the bio load of your tank and cause a reset in its cycle.
This depends on the strength of the filtration system on the tank. On a 'normal' five gallon tank (filter turnover about 5x/hour) three or four would be a good number. On a 'five gallon tank on steroids' (I have one of these - filter turnover 12x/hour) I kept seven with no problems. If you're going …to keep more than three or four, regardless of your filtration, you need to be religious about tank maintenance - 50% water change, every week. Keeping more than 6 or 7 in the tank is probably not going to work. (For filter turnover, 5x/hour means the filter pumps 5 times the tank's volume each hour, so that would be a 25gph filter in a 5 gal tank.) ( Full Answer )
I only do 20 to 30% water changes once a week. You should test your water regularly to see what the Amonia, Nitrite, and Nitrate levels are so that you know if your changing enough water.
They cost around $10-20 depending where you buy them and what features they have. I would recommend buying a bigger fish tank like a 10 Gallon. They are very cheap, about $10.00 maybe $12.00. A 10 Gallon will do better and make the fish happier. The only reason to get a smaller tank is if you don't …have very much space. You and your fish will be happier with a 10 Gal though. Your fish will grow larger, be more healthy and live longer. The rule of thumb is 1 Gal for each inch of fish you have. ( Full Answer )
The commonly used ratio that is proven healthy & safe for fish is one gallon of water for every inch of fish. So, five inches of fish. I'd go with two, maybe three if they're small.
The 200 Gallons of water would weigh about 1669 lbs. Your entire tank with water would weigh more than that though because of rocks, sand, and anything else you put in it.
A 5 gallon fish tank would have to be completely cleaned out at least 3 to 4 times a week as it's really too small to have any fish; it would be great for a few ghost shrimp, or just some live plants instead
If the temperature is around 20 degrees (Celcius) probably not. Butfor a five GALLON fish tank, probably.
One gallon of water is 8.345404 Lbs. So a 100 gallon tank would have 834.5404 lbs of water.
I am sorry to say, but no fish can go in with betas. They are very territorial and will most likely hurt the other fish. Try this. Put a mirror up to the tank. The beta may throw itself at the tank and try to attak its mirror image.
I have 5 zebra danios in my five gallon tank and they are doing great! Just make sure that you don't buy them from chain stores.
Your water is screwed up. Bettas can take oxygen from either air or water and they can turn off their gills if need be, so they don't have to breathe the bad water.
100 pounds. 10 pounds an imperial gallon dont ever lift up a tankthere is alot of pressure on the sides and it will split
Depending on their size, about 4-5. They shouldn't be over 2 inches and all should need similar living conditions. If they are thick bodied fish, I wouldn't put more then 3, max 4. Hope this helped
You could keep a school of 5 to 7 neon tetras and two otto fish in a five gallon
You can put it on a table if you choose. NEVER put a tank on the floor.
Five gallons is too small to house two bettas. A ten to fifteen gallon tank would be perfect for breeding. If you cannot purchase a bigger tank, then I recommend only buying one betta.
It all depends. If your getting just the tank I would say, no more than $30.00 to $35.00. If it's Equiit. Dollar a gallon is the fair going rate. Goodluck...
Yes, as long as he's healthy and happy and the current in the water is very low. However, they won't actually breed in a small tank, he'll just blow bubbles to pass the time.
The price of a ten gallon tank ranges from $15 to over $100. If you are planning to keep fish in the tank, then you'll have to think about accessories like a heater, a thermometer, a hood, lights, plants, a filter, and, of course, what kind of fish you want. It's also important to do a little readin…g and make sure that your fish are compatible. ( Full Answer )
