This a pretty nice tank. I don't recommend it for fish, though. I've a planted one with shrimps on my desk and have to move a lot of them frequently to my other tank as they keep reproducing like crazy.

Might pick another one if I can find where to place it.

It could house a betta, but I prefer 5.5g tanks for mine.

Edit: Some reviews say the filtration is too strong for a betta.

Yeah this is really too small for just about any fish. Bettas can work in here, but DO NOT put a goldfish in here.

Maybe like a neon or two could work too, but that's not that exciting.

Do you think the light is good to grow aquatic plants? I want to start a small aquascaping project.

+1 I kept my first betta in something similar and in hindsight it was awful of me to do that.

Light is good for low to moderate light requirement plants (anubias, java fern/moss, amazon swords, dwarf sagittaria, crypts, rotala etc.). It most likely won't grow bushy carpeting plants like HC cuba. You may have some lucky with monte carlo or dwarf hairgrass, but mine kind of just stays dormant and doesn't really propagate. I don't use CO2 at all in my tanks.


The 2.6g fluval spec I have has dwarf sagi, crypts, and some kind of sword plants doing very well and houses a few guppies plus a snail (since guppies don't really need a school, and you can do like a lone male, or 1 male 2 females, but they will definitely breed so watch out). I don't know why people don't recommend betta; it's kind of the perfect fish for this tank since you cannot really stock too much in a 2.6 gallon when most freshwater fish needs a school or will breed like crazy. The one I had in it was super happy and healthy before I moved it to a 5 gallon. If you plant a lot, the betta will be much happier. But if you must, you can also try a small school of ember tetra, lambchop rasbora, or white cloud minnows since they are pretty small. Some people recommend shrimps, but I can never keep them alive no matter how hard I try and how much I plant (I think the tap water in my locality is just too hard for them, and I don't want to haul distilled water every week just to keep neocaridina shrimps).

I have the Spec V it's perfect for a betta fish, I also own two Spec III but do agreed it's too small for a fish.

Get cardinal shrimp. They have super red body with deep white arms and contrast extremely well in plant tank with dark substrate.
