Not good for gold fish... gold fish require at least 40 gallons

Fish require bigger tanks. PLUS, Bigger tanks are usually easier to maintain. And are more impressive. Be nice to fish, they will usually be nice to you. usually.

The reasonable response isn't "don't get any fish", but it certainly is "don't get any goldfish". Goldfish are just too messy and too big for small tanks. But a Betta is a great alternative choice and there are many varieties. Also don't knock a shrimp tank if you haven't seen them, my 5 gallon with live plants and rcs is my favorite tank to watch out of the 7 I have, all of which are bigger and have "better" fish

Good price on this tank. IMO, the Fluval are the best designed of the mini tanks. Great for 1 Betta OR shrimp and/or snails.

Honestly, these are too small for a Betta. Fine for shrimp though.

10 gallons per fish. I used to breed them for size.

Agreed. I had a betta in the five gallon version of this tank, and moved him into a 10 gallon a few months later. He was a much happier fish.

true indeed especially for saltwater but even with fresh the larger the easier it is to maintain since water parameters such as ph level, amonia nitrate, nitrite levels are more stable with more water.
keep in mind this is essentially just a little beta tank or perhaps a small live plant tank, it can suit its purpose when serving its purpose and nothing else.

How do you know the fish is happier? Honest question. Was about to order 5 gal Marineland that gets great reviews with many speaking of their bettas.
