I am especially interested in really small tanks, and suitable fish, so I was interested to see which ones you chose.  Neons are often recommended for tiny tanks but then like many others they have to be in a fairly large group, and there's no space.   It's nice to see your setup, although we could have done without the Debussy La Fille aux Cheveux de Lin particularly on of all things, the Clarinet !  Just joking, at least you kept the volume down, thank you !  : )  Can you recommend fish for the challenging 4 gallon tank?

I like that you're trying to give your fish more space, but why on earth would you need 55 gallons for such a small amount of fish? I think a 20 to 29 gallon with lots of plants would suffice.

stopfollowingme It's very similar. In both cases, the person should be taking responsibility and care for the baby/fish, but they don't. Instead they put the baby/fish through horrible situations. In both cases, the fish/baby has a high chance of dying. So what's wrong with the comparison?

I think it's really rude of you to say "how long did it live?" That's the same as seeing a baby chewing on a toy on Facebook, and the commenting, "that toy is covered in billions of germs. how long do you think you're baby will live?" pathetic.
Sue Sundowner

The one inch rule IS a lot of crap. But because it doesn't provide enough room, not the other way around. This tank is (though I reckon it's "was" not "is") overstocked. I don't think the uploader of this video ever answered the question about how long the fish lived.
Jack smith
Jack smith - 5 years ago
+Sue Sundowner Seems big enough for them all to me. The inch per gallon rule is a load of crap. A 1.5 inch platy would create 10x the amount of waste a 1.5 inch neon would, so there is no consistency. Neon's and Betta's do not create alot of waste so this set up should be okay for the stocking providing there is enough room for everyone, which there appears to be. Your argument is better spent telling people keeping betta's in 1 gallon bowls.

+Kristin Brianne Estep-Sawyer Its not overcrowded at all, some people think that your only allowed to have 1 or 2 fish in a five and that's so not true. Your tank looks awesome, I have ten rasboras in my five gallon I'm getting a bigger tank though, want a couple more different fish. Your tank is fine and one of my favorite's small tank's on YouTube. Great job

And again, back to my point, just because fish are abused in box stores doesn't mean fish owners, who presumably want their fish to live healthy lives for years, should abuse them. Let's do a little math for anyone who would like to see how badly overstocked this tank is. Even using the antiquated "one gallon per inch of fish" (outdated because most experts today say you need two gallons per inch). A grown betta is about 3 inches. The seven neon tetras will grow to about 1.5 inches. That calculates to 13.5 inches of fish. So at the absolute minimum, this fish owner needed a 15 gallon tank for the fish to have a chance to stay healthy. The ideal would be 25 gallons. This is a 5 gallon tank. I'm not gong to argue with you any longer because you keep repeating uninformed statements. I only post this in hopes that other people will not make the mistakes this fish owner did. I'm sure his fish didn't live long although hopefully he did quickly move them to decent sized tank.
Sue Sundowner
Sue Sundowner - 5 years ago
Moron is your word, not mine. Of course one betta would do fine alone in a 5 gallon tank, but there also are seven tetras and at least 4 or 5 ghost shrimp. Eight fish and four ghost shrimp! This tank is way overstocked. I'm not sure what research you did that said this is a healthy way to stock a very small tank, but be careful what you post. Some morons might believe you and end up with a bunch of dead fish.
Sue Sundowner
Sue Sundowner - 5 years ago
The fact that bettas are sadly sold in tiny cups does not make this tank large enough for the amount of fish in this tiny 5 gallon tank. You may want to do a little research, especially if own or plan to own fish. My bet is these poor little guys had short lives unless they were moved to a larger tank.

Lauren Kip
Lauren Kip - 5 years ago
Yes you can keep A betta fish with neon Tetras. I have a 2.5 tank and I keep 1 beta fish and 4 neon tetras in it but I am getting a new tank soon that is about 5.5 gallons. Also if you're going to keep a beta fish with neon tetras then I would recommend getting a female beta fish. I have a female beta fish with my neon Tetris and they love swimming together. It just all depends on the personality of the beta fish

what do you feed the shrimp and neon tetras ? do all 3 ( shrimp, Betta, and tetra get along?
emma woodrich
emma woodrich - 5 years ago
I know this question isn't for me but I have an answer so I figured i would help you out lol.. Tetras will eat the basic tropical fish flakes you find at any pet store. Ghost shrimp are bottom feeders which means they eat the leftover food and algae at the bottom of the the tank, so you don't actually have to feed them anything. A beta would most likely get along with ghost shrimp or another bottom feeder such as a snail or African dwarf frog. I personally would not put a beta with tetras, especially a male beta because it's very likely they will attack. Good luck :)

Tell Me And I Forget
Tell Me And I Forget - 5 years ago
+Vicky Li You are completely right, Neons should be kept in a minimum of ten gallons! They could be kept with a Betta, if the tank is heavenly planted and has some good hiding spots, of course also if your Betta is mellow enough the one in this video seems a bit too mellow, he could be stressed out because the tank is too small, no need to start a war just proper fish care folks :)

Dana Stichman
Dana Stichman - 6 years ago
Was very hopeful after seeing this video.  Sadly, I gave it a shot and got 7 tetras to add to my betta.  The betta killed 2 within an hour.  Then plucked the others over the next few days.  The tetras brought in ich, which I assume due to the stress, the betta could not handle.  In the final days, the betta and 2 surviving tetras passed from the ich.  The whole process was about 2 weeks.  Total regret, but I realize maybe it can work for others, I will not try again.

I know you commented a year ago but I was just going to say that I have a Betta fish and 4 neon tetras and they all live happy together. I have a female Betta fish with them and you might of had a male. Plus it just all depends on the Betta's personality because my female Betta is very calm and relaxed.

I've had ghost shrimp with my platies and guppies and had no problem with them accept that I kept looking them but I put on in my betta tank (baby betta, not too small though, around an inch) and the betta kept nagging him, it might have been because the tank was a little smaller then my other and it so the shrimp didn't have as many places to hide but have you ever had a problem with your betta bugging your ghost shrimp before? If so, could you recommend anything to help? I could just keep them out of that tank but I don't want to if I can fix the problem, They'd really look nice with the asian theme >-<

Depends. You usually want to have enough tetras where they just play with each other and won't nip at the Betta and tear apart it's fins.

But yeah as long as there is at least 6 and preferably like 10 or so, then it's ussually fine.

Second thoughts. Congrats you are treating your Siamese Fighting Fish very well from what I've seen. People take advantage of their ability to breathe air to mistreat them like they mistreat goldfish, mistaking survival for a rich life. Have you seen the leaf hammocks you can get for bettas that they use to sleep on. Those fins are heavy. Bettas like caves (small empty, never used clay plant pots) and need I say it real plants. They don't live that long. Put in a couple of java ferns.

Do ghost shrimp need an air line
Thaddius Leiber
Thaddius Leiber - 7 years ago
It should be fine - however, make sure not to overfeed and check ammonia/nitrate/nitrite levels at regular intervals. If those levels get out of control quickly, that is a sign of excess food or waste buildup in the tank, and can be deadly to fish if left unchecked.
Thaddius Leiber
Thaddius Leiber - 7 years ago
Betta splendens can be kept with numerous community and semi-aggressive fish, including female Betta (sometimes) - the highest risk is pairing them with another male Betta, and is never recommended, as they will compete for territory and often fight until death.
Thaddius Leiber
Thaddius Leiber - 7 years ago
Not really, the Neons and Ghost Shrimp don't produce very much waste at all, so don't think of them as 11 fish, because of their size and metabolism. Even with the Betta, this is plenty large enough - although as the author states, it is very likely already at capacity.

Its not about that its about the biological life in your tank. all those fish are making more waste they the biological system in the tank can handle. I have a 10 gallon with an angel [to be rehomed asap] 2 silver mollies, and 2 snails. And their all happy and the angel seems fine but i'm at my maximum for what my tank can handle in terms of biological load. And i have about 0.3 the number of fish you have.

gold fish are cold water fish that are normally used for ponds. In the winter all you have to do is keep a hole open on the surface of the water but they go dormant. They don't eat and they just sleep when it warms up they start swimming again. So not all fish need heaters.

I just saved a female betta from walmart she was upside down and the lady told me if I really wanted her because she was dead. :( she didnt even know the difference from the male and female. She is well now and her color is coming back :) she is still shy but she is happy.

Pamfilo22 - 8 years ago
You are right people will hate and all, but it all depends on the owner as well. If you provide good filtration and you do water changes everything will be fine. Yes fish do need a large space to be happy, but I had an overstock 10 gallon because I had 2 fish more than what it should of been and they all developed wonderful colors and I even rescued them, because they looked pale and dead. What good is it for someone to give them a large tank but no care.

mdp8167 - 8 years ago
Theres an actual reason people say its over stocked. BECAUSE IT IS. Your tank sounds like a nightmare. Thats not even a tank its a glorified fish bowl. Try living in a space the size of your bathroom. I mean it wont kill you right? So that must be good enough.

A clown fish? Those are salt water fish whereas betta are freshwater and they can't live in the same tank due to that. I would just stick to the betta, but make sure it has the right kind of tank and not a little bowl.

Tanner Jedi
Tanner Jedi - 8 years ago
I'm not backwards. The bigger the tank the less often you do water changes because a lot of water can tolerate the fish waste longer so basically smaller tanks get dirty faster. You don't need to be an "advanced fish expert" to keep a 40 gallon tank (kinda small in my opinion) I have a 50 gallon that I do 20% water changes on weekly and a ten gallon that I do 30 % water changes weekly I'm getting a seventy-five gallon next year too. And I'm only ten years old. So I don't know what you mean.

You can get it cheaper. $15 for tank, $10-15 for fish, $3 for gravel, $1-3 for plants, $5 for decorations, $13 for filter and air pump, and $5 for other accessories. That equals to $52-60.

Great tank. For anyone looking for a nice filter for a betta tank, look up the Azoo Mignon Filter 60 on Amazon. It has adjustable flow. AsianDude666 has a good setup video on here for it as well.

It looks like a luggage tag with a suction cup. It's made by SEACHEM and is in there alert series. It has 4 different colours on the pie chart like scale. The centre changes colour within 10 minutes to warn you of a problem. The darker the colour, the worse the problem. It lasts for a year. I was given mine by a petshop supply company called ALF. Apparently they are about £12. I have the guys number if you want, just message me through my page.

@Chunky154557 Gold fish are carp and therefore get very large I'm pretty sure 29 gallons is the minimum for the smallest gold fish while most need at least 55 gallons.

Tank looks nice, but I'm not sure why you think maintaining a smaller tank is easier. Big tanks have a lot more room for error.

Just don't understand your reasoning.

@RedCupOranda shrimp doesn't just eat algae, they are omnivores, so they eat both meat and plants. at first i thought they were just scavangers, i guessed wrong. take it as a warning, grown ghost shrimp will eat small fishes such as tetras. and stop calling people stupid. i'm just talking from personal experience. those 15 ghost for 1 dollar ghost shrimps will eat small fishes. trust me i know. i've had aquarium for over 7 years now. gl.

@misskc96 The log is called Driftwood, and if you live near a beach, that's where you can find a lot of driftwood. If you don't live near a beach, at pet stores they have mock driftwood in all shapes and sizes for low cost. If you go on Petsmart.com and search 'driftwood' you'll get results

@thePapermaster1234 Yeah, just not the Chinese ones. They eventually get aggressive. Don't know much about the Siamese ones, I think they're okay. Plecos are cool, very hardy, but they get big. Oto Cats are my favorite, the cheapest and prolly the best choice with a betta. Only problem is, they're the least hardy and the territorial nature of the betta doesn't help.

simple but nice - if u got rid of the betta u could probably get away with another small shoal of a different type of tetra---i would reccomend platinums or black neons...i have always thought its best to keep fish from the same part of the world- wat u have there is south american/asian!

do you keep that fluorescent bulb on at all times? Does it impact water temperature along with the heater? also, where did you find the lid for the tank? All of the rectangular tanks I see at my local pet stores are lidless.

@TheMyameeGirl That IS very true. Point noted, and I apologize. Somehow I do always forget how dumb people are, even though our culture constantly reminds me of that very fact.
MyameeGirl
MyameeGirl - 10 years ago
Very nice tank! I love the driftwood. You're water is so clear with it. I've heard that it driftwood tends to tint the water a bit. Looks great! Cheers!
MyameeGirl
MyameeGirl - 10 years ago
@SmittyKat LOL! Meowww! Pfft... pfft!! You should have said all that then, instead of implying that they can live in any temperature between 65 and 90. There are some pretty stupid people on YouTube that see a response like that and think it's okay to keep them at such temperatures.
Katherine Smith
Katherine Smith - 10 years ago
@TheMyameeGirl Ok first of all I said they CAN live in those temperatures I didn't say it was the ideal. Secondly, 90 degree water won't cook it. If you've ever treated for ick using just salt and high temperatures, you HAVE to get it up to 90 degrees to speed up the life cycle of the ick so that the salt will kill it. The only thing with water that warm is it loses oxygen quicker, so you have to add extra aeration. And 65 degree water will make them sluggish but it won't kill them.
MyameeGirl
MyameeGirl - 10 years ago
@SmittyKat Are you talking about Betta's being kept at 65 to 90 degrees? Ummm, yeah, maybe if you want them to cook. Ideally, they should be between 75 to 82 degrees. At 90 degrees, that's waaay too warm, and at 65 degrees... well, why don't you take a bath in 65 degree water and see how you like it.
Katherine Smith
Katherine Smith - 10 years ago
@1010RANDOMVIDEOS1010 They can live in water between 65 and 90 degrees, which makes them so easy to keep.
Katherine Smith
Katherine Smith - 10 years ago
@Mokey117 Indeed you are correct. I've had the same thing happen.
Katherine Smith
Katherine Smith - 10 years ago
@PDeppa Sounds great without the betta. The tetras and bettas don't mix.
Katherine Smith
Katherine Smith - 10 years ago
@mcluvin83 I agree with most of that except the part about the tetras. Tetras are actually in the piranha family, so they are very aggressive to other fish as well. Avoid putting them with bettas at all costs. They will pick the betta to pieces. I've had it happen.
Katherine Smith
Katherine Smith - 10 years ago
@funnes1 they only fight other bettas. They're actually pretty timid around other fish.

@mcluvin83 Gotta be really careful keeping bettas with tetras other than neons and cardinals. I tried to put mine in my tetra tank, within 3 hours his tail was torn to shreds. A big tail like that is way too appealing for nippy fish.
Luimeril
Luimeril - 10 years ago
@NickHex81 it's recommended to house neons in at least a 10 gallon. they're very active fish, and like LOTS of room to dart about in schools of at least 5 fish. i'm not sure which to add first, though. your betta must be happy, in his 2 gallon. :3 that's more room than most give these beautiful fish!
Luimeril
Luimeril - 10 years ago
@AniuLonewolf Plecos of all species get to be about two feet or so in size. are you able to get them at least a 29 gallon tank, to allow your Pleco to grow to it's full, lovely size? i had a pleco as a kid, and he was nearly 2 feet when he finally died, after about 11 years. :3
Luimeril
Luimeril - 10 years ago
@MLGGatewayGuy tiger barbs are schooling fish, and get horridly aggressive if not in a proper school. can you get them all a bigger tank, so you can get proper schools of both species? it sounds like a beautiful tank, with two beautiful fish, though. :3
Luimeril
Luimeril - 10 years ago
no need to bash the guy. it's a beautiful tank, in all actuality. though, it's suggested to have neons and a tankmate in at least 10 gallons. neons are some of the few fish you can house bettas with.

How are the betta and the tetras getting along? I've heard they are prone to fin nip the betta and the betta is likely to get aggressive with them, has this been true in your case? Did the betta seem sadder when you added them or is he fine with sharing his tank? I just got a betta in a 5 gal, and I was contemplating introducing 5 neon tetras in two weeks or a month but I'm a little hesitant to do it.

Nefariousmatter
Nefariousmatter - 10 years ago
@meetthebocker Not really. It's just fine. Betta's atleast need a 1 gallon tank, That many Tetra's will need a 4-5 gallons. So overall it's perfectly suitable.
Nefariousmatter
Nefariousmatter - 10 years ago
@Brickner96 If you are going to get a goldfish you are defintley gonna need a big tank (A 10 gallon tank iis suitable for one goldfish anything under that isn't.) Plus, they produce waste.. ALOT. If you still want to tank a Betta and Goldfish together. It really depends on the Betta Fish personality. Some are more agressive then others. When choosing a betta choose one that seems less aggresive. Small crabs- Is okay. But the Betta might nip at the crab.
Nefariousmatter
Nefariousmatter - 10 years ago
@zany910 Goldfish need something way bigger then a 5 gallon tank to live. You probably stunt his growth already since he lived in a 1 gallon. He won't live for very long. Anyway, Is your Tetra acting funny? Not eating? Not swimming? Torn fins? If not, then he might be okay. If his fins are torn i suggest getting some kind of medicene (Aquasafe, tetrafix, etc) to make him feel better.

ScarletLetter86
ScarletLetter86 - 10 years ago
@mrJBKfilms The neons are way to fast for a betta, and after a while he'll get bored with them and leave them alone. A betta can live with anything thats fast enough to get away, and won't nip or antagonize him, aka showy fins, and fin nippers. They actually make really good community tank fish, if you know what to put them with, and some very special cases (very special and i'd NEVER recommend it) some male bettas can live with other males.

My betta is very docile (he doesn't even really flare at his own reflection, just gets curious and swims around by the mirror), so I think he'd do great with other fish

I heard that neon tetras couldn't live with bettas because of the temperature differences and oxygen requirements? @_@ I'd like to get some advice... because I really want to start a community tank with my betta, and the tank would look gorgeous with the neon tetras because they'd match my betta ^-^

I thought Betta's had to live by themselves because they'd attack anything else?! I've always wanted to add something to my 2.5Gal tank but thought he'd eat anything I put in there. 'guess I'll try!

@ColeyDude2K okay cool, thank youu :D well now i got a 65 litre tank, so about 14 litres because it turned out my 5.5 gallon tank was leaking so yeah. i hope that will be big enough for the community i want. but yeah i can shoot them back down aswell ;)
ColeyDude2K
ColeyDude2K - 11 years ago
@wigglezhujun it really depends on the Betta's personality, some will live in complete harmony where as others will just do what they can to be the only fish in the tank. unfortunatly with the bettas, you never know untill there in that situation.

ColeyDude2K - 11 years ago
@yoursexisonfire09 rule of thumb is 1 inch of fish per gallon. As neon tetras grow to around 1 inch, most hobbyists will say five is the max in a 5 gallon, or just one betta on its own with maybe some ghost shrimp. even tho there looks to be loads of room in the tank its mainly about the Bio Load on the small space. Some people add more that that rule states but be prepared for people to shoot you down. i hope this helps :)
ColeyDude2K
ColeyDude2K - 11 years ago
@MrTvshowuploader4 its all down to the temprement of the betta. Some betta's have a placid nature so it will be fine, others will be territorial and they may go for the neons. Neons are quick swimmers so they should be able to get away in time if the betta decides to go for them but unfortunatly, untill there in the tank together you just wont know. Also as a rule of thumb, you should have no more than 1 inch of fish per gallon, but thats just a guide :)

@MinTrinidad the way to do it is when you get new driftwood (or any wood for that matter) you should fill a bucket with boiling hot water and add the driftwood. Keep the driftwood soaking for a few days whilst changing the water for fresh, clean boiling water about twice a day. after a few days of doing this the wood should be ok to add to your tank without the worry of it bleeding out all over the place :)

so 5 gallons ISNT too little to keep 7 neon tetras and a betta! i love your tank; this is the perfect community tank for me, and i've been askign around and everyoen tells me my tank (5.5 gallons) is far too small to keep that many fish. right now my tanks only running for 2 weeks to mature the water, and next sunday im introducing 7-8 tetras, and then a couple of weeks later a betta. the ghost shrimp are a nice addition, but im considering corydoras. what do you think?

A 5 gallon tank is generally not easier to maintain than a 10 gallon. The bigger the tank, the easier the maintenance. Small aquariums require more work because ammonia and nitrite levels rise at high concentrations more quickly. The tank looks fantastic though and I don't mean to be judgmental. There is no problem. I'm just saying that smaller is not better.

I was wondering.. If your neons eat tropical flakes and your betta eats betta pellets/flakes how or what do you feed them? Beautiful tank by the way! I'm astounded :) I'm actually going to go out and buy some black gravel. I didn't know how classy it can make the tank ;)

Nice setup. But I wouldn´t put Neons in there with a Betta,when the Neons found out someday the can nip the will do it all the time,I tried this 2 times with red neons and neon tetras,its much harder to see when you have a Vailtaile Betta but when you have a halfmoon its easy to tell when a piece of fin is lost,I saw these little mosters nipping on him and I have 55 Gallon btw.

is this a plastic tank? and is that a heater i see on the left? the dude at the shop i use said its not wise to use heaters in plastic tanks. but then how does one keep tetras and danios or a gourami in just room temp water?
Myles Prower
Myles Prower - 11 years ago
How does the betta respond to the tetras? I was told not to put them together because tetras like to nip at betta fins. True or False?

Great video and information. I did some research to see what I could add to my tank and was surprised to see that you could add tetra's. Yours look very content. I think I may get an apple snail instead of ghost shrimp, but the little shrimp are so cute!

@rancor6969 They should be fine. Do a bit of research online. That's how I came across this video. Tetra's, apple snails, and ghost shrimp and usually okay additions. Good luck!
