I didn’t do my homework when my son “won” a goldfish from a fair, I went directly to Petsmart. I was advised (now I know badly) to buy a 10 gallon set and a few more fish to make it worthwhile. I’ve had a ton of trouble keeping the water as it should be, so I decided to buy a 65 gallon tank. I was advised to run the new tank for a week before adding fish. The 10 gallon is still problematic and since I keep being told different things, what should I do?

You went to the Pet Store, purchased the perfect 10 gallon aquarium kit, which probably inclued the tank, filter system, heater, aquarium top, light, fish net, and your first water conditioner sample. You purchase some gravel, a few fake plants, and...A 1-gallon fish tank is a small tank option and is unsuitable for most fish. There are a few options available that will suit a 1-gallon tank, though there are limitations on the number of fish appropriate for the small tank size. In general, most fish species would only allow a single fish in the tank at any given time.Betta are curious fish who like to swim and will get bored. That's why our personal recommendation is the 6.6 gallon bookshelf tank. We're currently upgrading all of our Bettas to those tanks as the budget allows. This tank is also acrylic with a slight bow to the front. It's a shallow tank that's longer than a 10 gallon standard tank. It comes with a hang-on-back filter, acrylic light guard and a fluorescent tube light hood.Betta fish can tolerate a 1-gallon fish tank. Since betta fish are both aggressive and small, keeping a single fish in a 1-gallon tank is appropriate. For betta fish, the 1-gallon tank is only appropriate if there is a single fish. For more than one fish, the tank is too small and the fish will attack each other.Guppies are a small fish that are social. Since the fish are social, a small tank is not appropriate because only one fish can be in the tank, which would socially isolate the fish. For the short term, such as when a guppy is dropping fry, a 1-gallon tank with plenty of plants is appropriate because it allows the new fry somewhere to hide, and separates the pregnant guppy to prevent the adults from eating the fry at birth.In general, a 1-gallon tank is too small for fish because the general rule for fish tank size is that a fish needs 1 gallon of water per 1 inch in length. Any fish that grows larger than 1 inch is too big to fit in the tank comfortably. Generally, the best fish for a 1-gallon tank is a betta because they are hearty and need separation from other fish.
