what freshwater fish can live HAPPILY in a 1.5 gallon tank
A.1 inch of tetra fish per gallon and 3 inches of gold fish per gallon. That being said, I'd say 5 guppies or 5 tetras but only 1 goldfish until it out grows the tank.
Hi Ankita, There are several species that are considered danios. So it would depend on what kind of danio, and how active the danios are. The 2″ danios are too big for a 5 gallon tank, but there is at least one I saw listed as 1″ fish and a couple barely over an inch, and those would be better.
Easy Portability: Though made of glass, the total weight of this entire 5 gallon fish tank set is only 12 pounds, which is why moving the aquarium while adjusting will not be a great deal.

What fish can I have in a 1.5 gallon tank? - Quora
I think it's wiser to add another goldfish - rather than adding a tetra. They do best and live longer with another of their same kind. Goldfish can tolerate 1.5 gal tank if the other is of similar size.That being said, goldfish are very adaptive and sometimes will surprise you with what they'll tolerate. In fact, in outside LARGE ponds, they can live below 50 deg temps. But what hurts their longevity indoors is crowding them in a tiny space. Goldfish as a rule will keep growing in size in larger tanks. I hope that the person who wouldn't sell you another goldfish is not the one that sold you that tiny 1.5 gal tank.A good inexpensive environment for a smaller goldfish is about 10 gal. Understand that a 1.5-gal-tank is basically equivalent to jail. It'll keep a small goldfish alive for perhaps about 6-12 months. I've used such a tank as a hospital tank.As discussed in the article, tanks under 5 gallons are unsuitable for any fish whatsoever and even 5 gallon setups can only sustain a handful of species. Of the species you mention, only the snails would work 100% – even for ghost shrimp, 3.5 gallons is on the small side. Please, no vertebrates – only inverts like dwarf shrimp and snails.Since we were upgrading to the 5-gallon tank, I did not even consider a temporary solution such as the Betta Bowl Mini Heater made by Zoo Med. While companies may advertise they're safe, a heater in anything as small as a 1-gallon bowl is too dangerous for any fish, especially if you can't maintain a tropical temperature. I would not advise using these at all, unless you're willing to sacrifice your fish.Interesting info here regarding heaters for small tanks. We recently bought 4 black molly fish (1 black, 1 white and 2 dalmatian) for a 10 gallon aquarium and 3 of them died.. I didn't realize some heaters worked better than others. Not sure what the brand of heater is on this tank. I wonder if that could have had something to do with the fish not making it. Also, you mentioned the Betta being more lethargic when it was just in the bowl. We have a Betta and it was originally in the 10 gallon tank but we took it out when we got the 4 black mollies and put the Betta in a large bowl. I noticed right away he was not near as active in the bowl.. in fact, for a while I thought he may be getting sick. I think I may need to get him a 5 gallon tank like you are talking about here. Great hub.. thanks for sharing!
