    I'm buying my niece a 2.5 gallon tank and I was wondering how many fish can go in it. I'm not planning on buying HUGE fish, just a few average sized ones. Thanks in advance. I think this site is great.

    a few smaller breeds of tetra or one male betta would be pretty happy.

    You're pretty much limited to a single betta, or a single african dwarf frog, or some ghost shrimp. I would not put any tetras in a 2 1/2 gallon.

    You could do a Bumble Bee Goby tank. The tank will have to be brackish and you could put two Bumble bee Gobies in there.

    Get a nice betta, thats all u realy can get, But get a nice one like a half moon or crown tail. Add ghost shrimp to help keep it clean. And 1 oto to eat algae if u want. but thts it, nothing else.
