Hey everyone! For those who aren't kept up, I no longer house any of my bettas in anything less than 5 gallons. The only tank I have now is my 5 gallon that is currently home for my new betta, Sam. I've received a lot of messages about keeping my bettas in 3 gallons and for the most part this betta was only in there for 2 months at max. :)

My female Betta is gorgeous. Her body is dark purple and her fins are flowy and a mixture between purple/pink/red. She is the most beautiful female betta I have seen. Not sure why you're saying females are ugly

Lily Blossom no the minimum for both is the same. 10-20 gallon is more than enough for any betta fish.
Blossom Buddies

Does anyone know if female Berta's require more or less space? The tank I want is 20 gallons but I don't want to ever give less than 15 as 10 is the humane minimum

corbin87445 1 gallon tank is no good - especially if you have decor in the tank because that takes away from the volume of water in the tank. Feel as if you would enjoy your fish much better in at least a 2.5 gallon, if not a 3.

Shelie Acoba I always thought that 3 gallons is a pretty okay amount for a beta fish. I keep mine in one. he used to be in a 6 gallon tank with 3 other fish but, a fish I had named Newton was causing problems and since newton was a filter fish and of course my betta is a no filter fish I had to move him to a my 3 gallon tank.

Why is everyone complaining about the tank size she is using? I mean, i understand why people would want a bigger tank but I don't understand why it has to start so many arguments. A betta should be fine in a 2.5 gallon but would also have space in a 5 gallon or 10 gallon. As long as they are alive, healthy, and happy it should be fine. Just don't put them in a cup like walmart, petco, and petsmart.

You can go on just about any fish video on YouTube and they're all going to say that the tanks at their and they're not big enough and the truth is no fish should ever be put in a tank so obviously they're not going to be big enough but as for pets...especially bettas... compared to a cup that these fish live in, a 3-gallon it will do fine -_-

i hate seeing these fish in tiny aquariums. I keep 14 bettas a mix of females and males in my tank with other fish. It's a heavily planted 80 gallon tank. The fish never show any signs of aggression and all stick together in one area. No nibbling or even chasing is ever apparent. You can keep these fish as community fish no problem as long as you don't add them all together at once. I hate seeing then in tiny jars in Petsmart or petco

RabbitzRule Sadly that's why betta exist. In nature they are brown-ish but Thai people began breeding them to have more color and become more aggressive so that they'd fight, hence the name Siamese fighting fish. That's why most Wild betta species can be housed multiple males together.

Guys three gallons fine actually .5 over the minimum so stop saying they need a 5 gallon its really not necessary BTW i never cycle my tank i maybe leave it for an hour or so but whats the point you take out half the cycled water when cleaning anyway and if you are cleaning out the tank thoroughly u empty the tank completely but you don't leave your betta in the process in a cup for 2 weeks whilst you cycle the tank.

I have my betta in a 3 gallon planted tank. I used to have him in a 5 gallon. he is 3 years old and is still doing really well. I always do water changes and test the water. I never over feed. I took him out of the 5 gallon because at night he would flare up at his reflection because of the water the 5 gallon was designed and he got really stressed out. so I got the tetra 3 gallon and he enjoys it. lots of little caves and plants that he loves to swim around in and is active swimming about all day long. never have I seen him sit at the bottom or pin himself in the corner. he is fed brine shrimp and other live fish foods I get at my local petstore. for anyone who says all betta would miserable in a 3 gallon. your wrong. but! it better be a very interesting tank with plants caves and a spot with open water. low water current and a spot for him to sit near the surface. in my oppinion a 5 gallon is way way better. easier to take care of. easier to fit a good amount of stuff in and room for him to swim. but let's face it. most betta bought from pet stores are either kept in the cup they came in. or put in a fish bowl or vase to die. a 3 gallon planted tank with low current filter and good lighting. is a darn good spot for him to live. buy buy a 5 gallon if you can. if you can't. don't get a betta. but if you have a 3 gallon that has 3 gallons of true space for him. he will do great. just put effort into making it a home you would want to live in. don't torture these fish. it's so sad. my betta is a flat orange crown tail that I got at a reef exbo for 40 dollars.

beneficial bacteria grows on everything, the glass, the substrate, the wood. so that bacteria would kinda help, but in the filter it would be better. also the plants will not grow from that sand lol, and the light will not grow them

PeachyGal The fuck? Lmao. Yes, a 3 gallon tank is perfectly fine depending on your betta fish. I had my betta in a 10 gallon tank but it was completely useless because HE DIDN'T UTILIZE THE SPACE. He's much happier in the 3 gallon, than in the 5 gallon or the 10 gallon I have. But - depends on the temperament of your betta fish. But I'll end this little rant with this: you're a twat :-)

i think it's awesome that you even got a tank for the betta! Sadly, most people who have those fish get them from Walmart or something and keep them in the same container, or double size. And definitely not with a filter. It made me happy to see you how the betta swam when it realized it was free of that little cup

Steven Dawood As someone responsible for the life of a living animal with emotions and feelings, your job is not just to go with the minimum, and it certainly isn't an excuse that something else may be worse. That's like leaving someone in a closet, then saying "lol well at least they aren't in a tiny box". they still aren't in living conditions and they shouldn't be put in that situation to live out the rest of their life.
Clustern xx
Clustern xx - 4 years ago
Melody Chen Minimum is what it is. Minimum. Five gallon is easier to maintain and provides a ethical amount of space for a living creature to spend the rest of their lives in. Personally, I'd never do anything below 10 gallons-- seeing a betta swimming around and exploring so much space is just way too rewarding for me to ever want to go smaller. 2.5 is alright, but it certainly isn't ideal, and I don't think I could ever bring myself to putting a living creature in such a small space.

Batman Flash No, you rescued him from a closet to a walk in closet. That's not much of a difference. Consider the five gallon tank, with plenty of space to swim and explore, to be able to move comfortably and hide without feeling cornered. That's an actual house, as in a living space. Anything smaller isn't enough. You may not see it because you're not thinking from fish perspective, but if you have done any research at all you'd realize that they need a BARE MINIMUM of 2.5 gallons.Putting them in something less is like putting them in a slightly larger than average cage and expecting them to live in it.

khaki91
khaki91 - 4 years ago
Makayla Maxheimer Like you stated, we put them in whatever container we give them. Tank size for a betta fish is an opinion still. I believe anything above a gallon with a small filter and heater is great since they're coming from a cup. Also, I do not approve of bowls. But hey, good luck with the hobby and nice chatting.
Clustern xx
Clustern xx - 4 years ago
khaki91 Just because they are bred to be in an environment that small doesn't mean it's the best for them, and it's our job as aquarists to give them the best possible life. They are in whatever container we give them, shouldn't it be one that without question gives them the best possible experience?
khaki91
khaki91 - 4 years ago
Makayla Maxheimer unfortunately you do not speak fish. We can only judge a fish by their looks and appearances. If the fish looks healthy and happy then I do not see any complaints. I did not mean to undermined your experience because I share the same experiences with other hobbiest and experts. Also you're comparing a human who was not raise in that type of environment to betta fish who were bred in cups. Not comparable. Take a look at my channel, I'm not new to the hobby in any way.
Clustern xx
Clustern xx - 4 years ago
khaki91 Well you could survive for a pretty long time if I stuck you in a closet and you had to do everything in there for the rest of your life, but that doesn't mean it's humane or okay. Having enough space to move around and explore is important to the health of any animal because all animals can become depressed or emotionally unhealthy. Fish are no different. They could be perfectly healthy, but that doesn't mean happy. It's not because I "think I know it all", it's through personal experience and the experiences of other aquarists who have done this their entire lives. I have talked with people who keep fish professionally and taken extra steps to do as much research on this subject as possible. I don't appreciate you trying to tell me that I just think that I know it all because my knowledge doesn't come from just what I think. It came from hard work and the comparison of many other experiences that I have seen.
khaki91
khaki91 - 4 years ago
Makayla Maxheimer oh really? I used to work for a fish/betta farm and all of our bettas are in a 1.5 gallon with a heater and filter. Perfectly healthy. Also my friend has his 3yr betta in a 1 gallon tank with a heater and filter. His tail is amazing. Let me tell him he is doing it wrong. Also I'm not saying a bigger tank isn't nice, of course it is, but so is a 1 gallon. Sometimes people think they know it all...
Clustern xx
Clustern xx - 4 years ago
khaki91 No, it doesn't matter whether wild or domesticated-- gallon tanks are not the right size for any kind of life, even shrimp or snails. There is not enough space for filtration or heat to properly work.
khaki91
khaki91 - 4 years ago
The size of the tank... Now that is a matter of opinion. I know people who kept healthy bettas in a gallon fish tank. Betta spendens, the colorful Bettas from the stores, which are fish that are farmed and domestically developed, they do not exist in the wild in this form. They have been raised and fully acclimated to this type of habitat. The wild species of Bettas need bigger tanks than a 10 gallon. That's like comparing wolves to dogs. Similar but quite different.
Clustern xx
Clustern xx - 4 years ago
Emily Wolfe You literally can't go overboard in size, ever, as long as you are giving them plenty of hiding spots. Mine is in a ten gallon, but trust me, I'd put them in a 100 gallon if I could. I get that you think two gallons works, but a simple google search would inform you that it's not even bare minimum. Please get a larger set up for your betta-- you'll see the happiest fish alive if you give them at least a planted five gallon tank with all the right requirements. They'd really appreciate it.
Emily Wolfe
Emily Wolfe - 4 years ago

Colonel Sanders It's just that bettas cannot be housed together, ever. Even in the most ideal situations. https://youtu.be/aEarfUEQAcw That was a huge tank with only five bettas, all sisters in a HEAVILY planted aquarium, and yet they still completely ripped into one another. Community tanks with multiple bettas are huge risks, even with the most ideal situations in place and are really not great ideas.

I can see how they might be appealing, but there's a lot of evidence that tanks with more than one betta do not work out and it's only to the pride of the owner that anyone would even consider having one of these tanks.

Colonel Sanders 2.5 is ABSOLUTE bare minimum, but 5 gallon is more comfortable, easier to manage and allows them plenty of space to be able to swim and move. It's more ethical and is easier to take care of, so five gallons would be much better for a betta to live in. a betta can TOLERATE a 2.5, but as an aquarist your job isn't "tolerate". You should be prepared to make the best possible situation for any animal that you buy, otherwise you shouldn't be getting that animal.

random girl I agree bigger is better, but just because my betta is in a 3 gallon tank doesn't mean he is automatically unhappy. He is getting a tank upgrade in December, but that doesn't mean he isn't as happy as he possibly can be in the environment he is now. The tank is actually 3.5 gallons, but I say 3 because of the small driftwood and plants in it. I would say 1-2 gallons is definitely too small, but 3 is just fine.
random girl
random girl - 4 years ago
Brianna Jeffer In the nature, they're in a big environment, plenty of miles to explore, not in a small tank. Your fish may look happy but irl maybe he's not. I know it's above the minimum, but will all the decorations and plants, it reduces the size, so the betta have less space. I don't care of your fish and how you treat it, just want you to know the truth. Do all you want with your betta, but I prefer to choose at minimum of the minimum a 5 G. The bigger the better, sorry if I sound cringey
Bree Fenton

random girl a 10 gallon tank for a single fish? I mean I get it, but it's not necessary. My betta fish is in a 3 gallon planted tank that he absolutely loves and explores all day. He loves tearing up the dwarf hair grass, loves sitting in the anubias, doesn't pay much mind to the java fern, and he moves his moss balls around the aquarium. He will even sit in my hand when I put my hands in the tank(: he has been with me for almost a year now, and I saved him from fin rot, gill flukes, and velvet. So don't tell me that my betta fish doesn't appreciate the fact that he's in an extremely natural environment and he's completely disease free and that he isn't happy with it. It was either a 3 gallon tank, or he would've died within a day in that cup if I didn't pick him up and immediately start 4 different kinds of treatments. I know my fish facts, so back off.

Unlike my my boyfriend's sister's betta whom is in a vase with nasty water - he doesn't do anything but sit. I tried to convince her to upgrade, but there's no use. Some people just don't care.

Tank should be setup at least 3 weeks before adding any fish so the biological cycle can get going. Also, bettas need heaters in their tank. Around 77F is good for them. At least you have a filter, many people keep bettas with no filter which is horrible. But, you need a heater and should also look up the 'nitrogen cycle in an aquarium'. They also like low water movement and lots of plants. Excessive water movement will stress them and not be good.

Mari Kurokawa
Mari Kurokawa - 4 years ago
2.5 is the minimum to thrive in, so i think it would be fine to put it in the bowl. filters are used to create and multiply beneficial bacteria to break down fish waste so if you clean them regularly they are fine even in bowls, even thought it might be stressful for the betta. the only concern is that fish bowls are curved so it distorts the betta fish's eyesight which might be a problem. i live in australia so i dont really need to worry about heating, but its better to get a heater for places with colder temperatures. so in conclusion, it's possible to keep it in a bowl, but its much less of a pain if you keep it in a fish tank. end of story.

Brianna Harter - 4 years ago
2.5 gallons is the min.



also yes you can keep a betta without a heater so long as their water stays above 75.


also you don't need a dedicated filter housing.a filter is about creating enough beneficial bacteria so ammonia gets broken down into its least harmful form nitrate.this can actually be done by using a sub straight that provides a good amount of surface area for the beneficial bacteria.you can even take biological filtration a step further and add fast growing live plants.this method of filtration can actually be better then a dedicated filter housing cause you never remove the sub straight meaning a stronger healthier beneficial colony can grow since you don't ever have to remove the filter media.

you can dial in how much water changes you need to do based on what your water is testing.I would suggest test strips since they are easy to use and give a general idea of what your quality is.if your water has any nitrites in it that means there is ammonia in your tanks meaning the bacteria aren't keeping up so you may need a dedicated filter housing at that point.if nitrates show up as safe you don't have to do a water change quite yet but the closer it gets to unsafe levels that means it will be time to change the water.

Ryanater 1.) with regular water changes of at least 50% every 3 days a filter is not required. 2.) a betta only needs a minimum of 3 gallons to thrive in their environment. 3.) a heater is not required if you live in a tropical environment that will allow the water to stay at a constant 75 degrees.

Don't spread false information.

The content you put is really up to you and how you want our filter to be. You should have 3 main components, which are 1) Biological filtration 2) Mechanical filtration and 3)Chemical filtration. You can probably get away with only having biological and mechanical. if you need more information on filtration, give this a read :) http://www.firsttankguide.net/filters.php

Can somebody help me? My tank has a filter in it, but I think my betta is scared of it. When ever I take it out, he decides to swim around but when ever it is in, he just sits in a corner. The filter is nessecary but I want my fish to be happy.

Your filter is probably a little too strong and the current is pushing him away. You can add a filter sponge where the water pours out from or buy a filter with an adjustable flow.

All I know is you have to add water conditioner to your water before you add it into your tank -- but like I said, her tank wasn't even cycled so there's no good bacteria in her tank to kill hahah

this tank is really small, even for a betta. Betta need space people! for me, for a betta to be happy, he need a MINIMUM of 5 gallons. but even a 5 gallon is small. i wouldn't feel confortable to keep one in any less then 10 gallons, juste because betta like to explore, they like to establish a big territory. in the wild, they have a territory of about 3 meters, so a 3 gallons is so far from their natural environnement!!! at less you put some real plants thaught, this is good. your tank should be the home of shrimps and snails, not fish! the life conditions of bettas in petshop or simply crual, so please, make the effort to give them a lot of space! they can be community fish, if you keep them in big tanks! neons tetras, corydoras and arlequin Rosberas are suitable tankmates, but in tanks big enough for everyone. so please, let's all just stop the abuse of theses poor fish, they diserve better! fish are fun to watch and you can learn so mush from them... but you need to respect them first. the first way to do this is by giving them the space they need and diserve.
Bob J-M Gervais
Bob J-M Gervais - 5 years ago
i must say that im use to keep goldfish, so they need bigger tank, and also, space and budget are things that can limite you, but at less you understand that the bigger the tank is, the more fun the fish will have. i guess that a betta can have an happy life in a 5 gallons, but yeah, for me, a ten gallon is a good size to begin with... ive done so many mistakes in the past that im just trying to help others not do the same... and some fish can take a lot of abuse and still survive... my oldest cory catfish is 6 years old now. they are suppose to live in group of at less five or six, but he have live an happy life alone for like 5 years. now he have two companion and i can see the difference. he tend to be much more social and he have regain a lot of energy. so yeah I hope you didin't take it to personal... every fish are different, some might like smaller space and other need bigger. the essencial is for them to have some space to swim and other place to hide and feel safe. i just want to break the mith that betta can live in horrible conditions. but yeah, if your betta is happy, nice for you :). it is true that they are slow and don't necesarelly need that much space, but it's always better to give them more then less :).
Shelie A
Shelie A - 5 years ago
I understand. I get a lot of messages saying to put my betta in at least 10 gallons, but I honestly have a really small room and I find 5 gallons to be good enough. I know it might not be enough for the fish but it's better considering the fact that they lived in a tiny cup, prior to being purchased. I also no longer have this 3 gallon because I understand that a betta needs more space than just 3. Thank you :)

Matty23
Matty23 - 5 years ago
She said she left the tank for 24 hours. If it was uncovered, that means the gas exchange at the top would have taken care of any chlorine. And if her room temp is fairly stable, and if she lives in a hot desert climate like Arizona or some place similar, then I bet her average room temp is anywhere from 76-80 degrees. No heater needed. Also, she obviously liked the music, so for her, it was the right choice.
You really need to learn more on how to correct others on their fishkeeping.

you did a really nice job with the tank. I would just like to through a few things out there though for everyone.
1. this may seem a little silly but bettas like there space even if it is just one, I feel a 5 gallon is good at minimum
2. betta fish like alot of plants ( preferably live ones which I believe you have, nice job) it gives them room to hide and explore and the black sand was a nice touch

Betta fish can breath off of the surface of the water, so no cycling is needed. Thats how they tolerate cups which get 90-100% water changes with no way to grow bacteria. They prefer cycled water but do fine in new tanks, which is why a lot of people use them to cycle new tanks faster.

I live in the UK. no petco here- pets at home only. We use the metric so my tank is more like 5.86546(numbers are approximate) gallons, so I call it 6 gal. It is in all fairness 20.6 L. my pic is of my female. I am getting a male soon. They jump for treats and are filtered, aireated and heated. I personally don't recommend anything under 5.5 but again, 3 gal is the absolute minimum, if you can afford larger, go larger.

right now petco is having a doller paer gallon sale, if you cannot afford that and a heater with a filter you should not keep a betta, you could also do a 5g just fine but 10 is cheaper right now...

+lexie rocks would you be content never leaving your house? because i would not call that thriving and thats all your betta is doing, bright fins and active although are good signs that doesnt mean he is thriving, only that he is healthy thriving is a nice apartment or small mansion like a 5 gallon or more, the bigger they sre the easier it is to keep stable anywaus
Lexie Rocks
Lexie Rocks - 5 years ago
If Bettas don't thrive in 2-3 gallon tanks than why have my betta's fins regrown completely in the 3 gallon I keep him in? I brought him home from the petstore labeled as female, that's how thorn his fins were and now he has long VT fins and vibrant blue and red color. Eats well and is active. In a 3 gallon. I'd call that thriving not surviving.

Females are (more) docile, but you have to watch what you put in the tank with a male fish. Anything else with a billowing tail will be seen as competition and they'll scrap to establish dominance. Bettas like to be the prettiest thing in their tanks.

You can build a communal tank. I've paired them with guppies, small tropical sharks, plecos, Cory cats, black mollies, and Kuhli loaches to name a few they got along with. Bigger tanks with more room make for fewer issues.

Hi, I know this is a late reply but to own a happy and healthy betta fish you need to have the tank 2.5 gallons or larger. You also need to put the right amount of water conditioner (will say amount per gallon on bottle) into the tank.

No! They are better in a 5 gallon tank or bigger. I have my betta that I rescued from Walmart in a 10 gallon tank with a small filter that's meant for a 3 gallon tank. You don't want a big filter like she has because it would create a strong current that bettas do not like at all.

Keeping a betta in a tank with no filter is like keeping them in a toxic puddle that they would try to escape from in the wild to a bigger body of water, except there is no bigger body of water for them to escape to. Give them room to thrive not live.

+Unknown Person
my beta hated the stone so much so that she would be on the floor as far as she could away from it
Noice
Noice - 5 years ago
+Kuuryo Okay yes. You are correct.
Kuuryo
Kuuryo - 5 years ago
Might want to double check that, they still have gills. Going to the surface is just supplemental. Such is my understanding at any rate. And an air stone won't stop them from surfacing as needed.

Air stones might cause too much turbulence in a 2.5 or 5 gallon, I can't comment on that because the smallest I've owned is a 10 gallon tank. Most every beta I've had seems to like going over to the air stone to play in the updraft rather than staying away from the 'turbulent' area of the tank.

The one I have now is in a 30 gallon tank and I've laid a 10" stone across the back to make a sort of bubble curtain. The fish is spending most of it's time there or in the slip stream created by the tank filter's discharge. I was sure he'd find the calm water to the front and hang out there but he seems to be loving the areas where the water is most active. I do need to tone the flow of the filter down though, it's a bit on the heavy side for the tank and fish.
Noice
Noice - 5 years ago
+Kuuryo That is correct but they don't need airstones. They have air lungs with means they breathe from the surface. Plus the airstones shake the water way to much for the fella.
Kuuryo
Kuuryo - 5 years ago
That setup looks OK, but a 5 gal setup would be exponentially better for the little fella. They're tropical fish, they do need heaters, filters, air stones and room to move. The cups are a travesty, and I can't fathom how they live in them long enough to even get to the store before ammonia buildup kills them.

A smaller tank will need the water cycled more often, that's the only real drawback to a 3 gallon tank. Most people won't want to cycle the water twice a week, but with a 5 gallon you can step down to a weekly maintenance schedule.
Noice

Nice enough setup other than the filtration. Far too much current for a Betta. Do some research on this. With such heavy fins, Betta need require much calmer water. They will eventually stress out from the constant battle with the water.
Phil
Phil - 4 years ago
Well done.
Phil
Phil - 4 years ago
Quite incorrect. They come from paddies and calm areas of fresh, standing water. The weight and mass of their tails makes fighting non-stop current extremely stressful on the fish, resulting in sickness and death. A little research will confirm this. I've raised and bred these fish for 25 years, and kept them even longer. This is not an opinion.

I want everyone to reasearch. There is no minimum! They can live anywhere, it just depends on how happy you want them to be. Would you rather live in your closet - You would have no bathroom, no way to clean it. Just you, yourself, and you in a closet - or your entire house - you have everything you ever wanted. Places to hide and explore, etc.

I have 3 tanks. My 2.5 gallon has 1 male betta -- a Royal Blue Crowntail named Carlos. My 5.5 gallon has 1 male betta - a Cellophane Marble SeD named Angel & 1 male guppy - yes, a guppy! - named Flame. My 20 gallon has 9 female bettas, 4 Cories, 5 Neon Tetras, two GloFish, and a partridge in a pear tree.

They can live anywhere, it just depends on what you give them.

Some people can't afford the shipping charges to get something shipped to them! Some people just can't do it. Everyone says it's fine to not use a heater as long as the room temperature is stable. Everyone I know has had Betta fish and they don't use heaters just because their scared they'll malfunction or other reasons (like money or reliability of brands found in their area). All those people had their fish for YEARS and YEARS and they were always happy. I live in South USA, and it's currectly summertime, we keep our house between 72-76 in the summer, if you're anything like me, Mlp KittyPawProductions lps, you'll be just fine :)

+Mlp KittyPawProductions lps Bettas should be kept at temperatures of 75-80 degrees F. A betta can tolerate temperatures as low as 70 degrees F and as high as 90 degrees F. However, it may be intolerant of either extreme. An individual fish adapts to upper and lower temperatures it experiences during the larval stage, a capability it loses as it grows older. Cold temperatures will depress the fish's immune system, so ordinarily harmless microbes become invasive and pathogenic. It is safer to heat a room that to use a heater. More fish die of faulty heaters than of cold. Heaters may fail and cook fish, or may break and provide an electric shock when you work in the tank. Thermostats on heaters corrode with age and stick, so the heater never turns off. If you live in a cold house, you may need a heater. The most reliable heater has an electronic thermostat. They cost more, but seldom overheat. Or, you could use a cheaper heater and replace it annually.

+Mlp KittyPawProductions lps I don't have this tank set up anymore but I didn't use a heater. You probably should get one if your room is not on a constant temperature. make sure it's a small voltage tho, because it can overheat and kill your fish

+Colley HD I placed my already established filter media in the tank. And since there's only 1 fish the ammonia spike won't be severe because by the time it happens a decent amount of good bacteria have already accumulated. I tested the water just in case 3 days after I put him in there and it all seems to be low. But you don't have to worry, I took this tank apart and moved him in the 5 gallon since my fish in the 5 gal passed away from swim bladder

+Colley HD yes. I checked the parameters of the tank and it was pristine. Since my other fish passed, I moved this new one into my well established 5 gallon
