How many guppies can you have in a 1 gallon tank?

How many guppies can you have in a 1 gallon tank?

You could fit 2–3 guppies in a one gallon tank. However, guppies are active social fish that like to be in at least a group of 3 and have 3 gallons of swimming space to themselves, so I would recommend a 10 gallon.

Can a goldfish live in a 2.5 gallon tank?

No it will not, for the simple reason that you can not house a goldfish in a 2.5g tank. A single goldfish needs a tank of at least 29g and extreme filtration. 2.5 gallon tanks are far too small for goldfish for several reasons. 1) Goldfish produce a lot of waste, and need heavy filtration to compensate.

How often should you change water in 3 gallon fish tank?

Once a week should be fine. That’s what I always do with my 3 and a 1/2 gallon tank. Yes, weekly, as long as the tank is fully cycled and appropriately stocked. If you have a filter, water changes should be done weekly.

How often should I change the water in a 5 gallon fish tank?

If you’ve got a 5 or 10-gallon tank then the answer is definitely at least once a week. Remember, the water inside your aquarium is the equivalent of air to your fish.

How often should you change gravel in fish tank?

As far as removing gravel to clean it; this should never have to be done in a properly maintained aquarium. I would say it as needed as long as the water is clear and not cloudy, and has been properly treated with various agents more so for the fish. But maybe once a month or every 2 week.

Do fish like water changes?

The answer is that regular water changes are important for the long-term health of your fish. The dissolved wastes in the water, which are not apparent to the naked eye, won’t kill the fish outright, but the stress reduces their immunity to disease.

Can you do too many water changes?

No. Daily water changes are fine. They’ll stress less from the activity than they would from poor water quality. Plus, they’ll eventually get used to it.

Is it OK to do a 50 water change?

Regular water changes are the cheapest, safest and most effective way of keeping nitrate levels at reasonable levels. If tank water has similar pH, GH and KH as tap water, changing 50% (or more) of the water at one time will not affect fish.

How high should the water level be in a fish tank?

Keep an eye on how much water is in your aquarium—most filters need the water level to be about one inch from the lip of the filter. Make sure your bubble walls and/or air stones are not directly under the intake tube. If bubbles go up the main tube, it will cause a rattling sound and may stop your filter from working.
