What is the ideal size? I don't want too much cleaning

I never really listened to the one inch per gallon rule and have always overstocked my tanks. Never had a problem but I always do frequent water changes. I've had 8 guppies and 4 Neons in one of my 3.5 Enchantments for about 2 years. They've always seemed happy but I'm not Aquaman so I can't be sure.SmilieSmilie
I had an over populated tank but I knew what I was doing. 75 gallon African Cichlids. I had 3 large canister filters fiters. 1 with sponges to clean. The other two just had bio rocks. Also a ton of plants and limestone. They loved it. From the pet store they were colorless. But second or third generation they began to show their original colors and personalities. Ran it for 15 years. Thinking of doing it again but this time with a 125 gallon.

Use to be big on fish geeks. But that site isn't around anymore.

If any of the "fish nazis" (I use that term endearingly) are still here, I got the 5.5g TopFin tank. Aside from a heater to keep the water warm in a relatively cool house, what are some recommendations for actual fish? Not going to try and overload the tank with ornaments aside from a few hiding places. New to aquaria and this seemed like a good point to jump in with the kids, but I don't want to do something stupid and wake up to a dead school of fish some morning

The word school means you've already messed up. Do a little homework. That size might hold a single fish that doesn't need a school.

Quote from BBQ_Bob :
I hope this is sarcasm. The general guidance is 1 gallon per 1 inch of fish. So, technically, you could put in 3 fish each shorter than 1 inch. A lot of fish grow longer than a inch, so maybe 3 neon tetras could fit, but neon tetras should be in groups of 6 or more, so it is not idea for them either.

Snails or shrimp might be a better use of this tank. Or it can be used as a hospital tank when you need to treat a fish with chemicals.
I used this for my betta fish for a couple years. Worked great! You do have to clean it out every 3-6 months, depending on how close you keep it to sunlight.

If you don't have much money and want a very simple easy aquarium with not much cleaning, Get a 10 gallon at the very least. The biggest mistake new fish keepers make is going small, feeding too much and constantly cleaning, Also live plants. You don't buy fish or snails to clean your aquarium, you do that. I keep aquariums myself and I rarely have to touch them because I make sure to buy enough lighting, buy live plants, and bioload appropriately and not overfeed. Fish only need to eat every other day at the very least. You'll also get symbiotic algae, and critters that just pop up with time that will help your fish live. Never break down a tank entirely and clean it, because that's the worst thing you could do. If you're interested in doing well and doing easy, read up on the Nitrate cycle, Get a 10 gal, a vaccuum syphon, and Inert Quickrete playsand from somewhere, Hit up your local aquarist groups about plant clippings on the cheap, and you should be able to make a great start for less then $100 if even that, including fish. And if you can help it, don't put fish in your tank until after the Nitrate cycle is complete. Bacteria in the tank is good, and you just feed the bacteria with fish food while the bacteria colonizes.

Get a betta. They are labyrinth fish and breathe oxygen, that's why they're kept in those small as hell cups. I'd recommend looking for a Plakat Betta though, those have short fins, they're healthier too and can swim better. Easily the easiest fish and probably one of the most personable and fun. If you're dead set on a school of fish, 6 Chili rasboras or rice fish would work, but you'd be hardpressed to find any if you're going to Petsmart/Petco only. They're much more rare in the end, Just research the Nitrate cycle, and remember, the less you mess with the tank, the better off it is, and never break a tank down(take all the water out) unless you want to kill your fish.

I've got two of the 5.5s going WITHOUT HEATERS in a house that stays around 70-74 degrees. I run a small foam filter in each and run the big filter about once a month for a few hours. 4 guppies, 4 glow danios, 1 Panda Cory and a Nerite snail in one. 3 Guppies, 2 neons, 2 otos, 1 pepper Cory and a mystery snail in the other. Tanks have a mix of live and fake plants. I do 1/4 water changes once a week and find these small tanks super easy to maintain.

Bout 2 years on the first one and a month on the second. I just switched from the 3.5 Enchantment to the 5.5 for the second tank about 3 weeks ago. I found the Enchantment plastic tanks harder to clean, they get scratched and it was hard to see the fish on the sides.

Thanks. I started work Betta in a 5 gallons tank. They all dead within a week. I didn't have the courage to start until now.
