What types of fish can I keep in my Water Garden?
We recommend betta fish, as they are especially hardy. Zebra danios and guppies also work well with the Water Garden at numbers of two to three per tank. The Water Garden is not suitable for fish that are particularly sensitive to fluctuating ammonia and nitrite levels. If you decide to keep goldfish, please make sure you have a larger tank to move them to once they outgrow the 3 gallons!
How many fish can I keep in my Water Garden?
If you have a betta, you can only keep one per tank, as they will fight if kept with other fish. If you’re keeping other peaceful fish, the general rule of thumb is 1” of fish per gallon.
Does it comes with everything you need?
Yes water garden comes with everything you need, except the Fish and water
