It is not really advised that you put any fish in there. However, you could put some shrimp, snails, and a few low light plants in there. Maybe even an african dwarf frog or two. Do you have anything like that available where you live?

Yeah, the yhave small frogs like that at my local walmart, do you think those would eb well suited for a one gallon tank?

The frogs are really hard to keep. I never had them last more than few days.

I think few glass shrimps will be fine. You may think of having a guppy if you are up for the wate changes. I have 2 of them in my 2 g tank for few weeks now and they are fine. I do almost daily water changes.

I use my 1 gallon to put Bate into when changing tanks/water changes and such. You could use it as a hospital tank for a betta too.

you could keep a couple ghost shrimp or cherry shrimp and some snails or something. some live plants might look nice in there with them! but it isnt much use for fish (unless you want them to suffer Crying or Very sad )

I think the hardest part is being able to feed them. They don't have very good eyesight and hunt by smell, so I had to "hand" feed them with an eyedropper. Even then, they didn't last too long. I couldn't imaginehaving them in a larger tank, I would have to be sticking my hand in the tank everyday to feed them. Maybe that's just me though. Smile

I have a 1 gallon tank. It used to house my betta, he didn't really seem to mind the siize. I did water changes every other day. Now I'm planing on getting a low light plant, and some ghost shrinp. But I would have to heavily clean it since my betta died last year due to some disease. Sad, and the tank is really dusty.
