I would say this should be pinned... But it's the only thread in the Nano tanks section.

Great thread Tek!
Just a thought - is it worth putting how many fish for each species in these size tanks?

Ok guys added the stocking limits. They are a GUIDELINE not a rule, always check stocking plans with an experienced member of the forum, they will help you. This is mostly a reference for the species of fish which are capable of being kept in nano tanks.

Thanks, Tek! This couldn't have come at a better time, as my step-daughter is starting up a 5g for her classroom and was just asking what kind and how many fish she could get. Perfect!!

There's only one obvious mistake in the new guidelines:
Betta splendens can rarely be kept in any male to female ratios specially in a 3 gallon tank.

Yeah, that probably wouldn't end too well on a permanent basis :p
 
 
The list is definitely starting to look useful though, plenty of options at all. It might be worth a pin once it's been exhausted - and of course when there's more threads in the freshwater nano tank section.
 
Fell free to post some photos or start a journal if you have a nano tank running that you'd like to share. We all like photos!
