- No lid or hood sold with it, purchased separately and available online at a site called, "Pet Solutions". It is a drop-in wrap around full hood, it doesn't have any fittings to secure it, but it is a snug fit. However, it would not stop an escape artist like an octopus from getting out. It would keep small jumping koi in, but even a lobster going through a molting phase would probably be motivated enough to push the hood open in hopes of finding a different, hidden location to go through the vulnerable molting. Also, the plastic hood has areas that can be cut out for placement of filter(s), etc. All of which should be installed as tightly as possible.by PleasantPain2/14/2016Was this answer helpful?

- No lid. Buy the one that is sold separately. I think its about 4 dollars and it fits perfectly.by jet360dog9/6/2016Was this answer helpful? (3) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- No the lid is seperate. The lid I got also from walmart.com is secure but a little tricky to lock down. I suggest going to a petsmart or pet shop to look at the lids and choose from there.by ratequeen4/18/2011Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- It does'nt come with a lid, but if you are using it for reptiles they have a lid for it in the same area where you would have found the tank. It has a screen top and two little hatches you can open to gain access inside. It also has little locks on the edges to secure it to the top of the tank. They're about 5-7 bucks.by RickyOBobby2/23/2015Was this answer helpful? (6) (0)Was this answer helpful?

- Not how many, but how much. Rule of thumb for basic setups is one inch of fish or equivalent per gallon. 10 gallons = 10 inches of fish. So, ten 1 inch fish, OR one 10 inch fish, OR 2 one and a half inch fish with 1 seven inch eel (or whatever) for a total of 1 inch per gallon, etc. Usually invertebrates are NOT factored into this formula, shrimp, snails, etc. Those types of critters are able to exist in overpopulated environments with little threat to their livelihood. Main concerns with tank occupancy are adjusting beneficial bacterial levels (so water toxins remain constant and don't fluctuate), amount and type of dissolved gasses (so suffocation or retardation doesn't occur, even during midnight power loss), and selecting a suitable community of co-habitable fish. Factors to consider should include, optimum temperature levels, food types and frequency of feeding required, behaviour type, preferred swimming depth, and specific environmental concerns; such as, needing smooth sediment to avoid bodily injury OR rough sediment to encourage burrowing behavior and trap floating food for bottom feeders, etc.by PleasantPain8/5/2016Was this answer helpful?

- look at the fish you going to buy at pets mart if it says 1-10 gallons then you can buy it. it says how you can buy of that kind of that fish that would work best.by ALTHEPAL558/5/2016Was this answer helpful? (1) (1)Was this answer helpful?
- A basic rule of thumb is one inch of fish (adult size) per gallon of water. The larger the fish, the fewer you can have. So you could have ten 1-inch fish or five 2-inch fish or three 3-inch fish. This is assuming you have an adequate filter and do frequent partial water changes.by Chiaroscuro8/5/2016Was this answer helpful? (4) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- it is recommended that you have no more then 10 fish in that tank the general rule is 1in per fish per gallon. so if you get a fish that grows 3in long, 5 in, and 2in you can only have three fish. hope this helpsby FishGuy178/5/2016Was this answer helpful? (2) (4)Was this answer helpful?
- TKAB is right. 1 gallon of water per inch of fish... for fish 3 inches in length and less. For fish greater than 3 inches in length, 2 gallons of water per inch of fish. Keep in mind that this rule is general. Some fish need more space depending on their territoriality, energy level, body shape/size, and waste production. For example, goldfish require more space than your typical tropical fish, mostly because they produce so much waste. One fancy goldfish (in other words, the kind with fancy fins and strange body shapes) requires 29 gallons all to itself. And as for Tiger Barbs, they need a longer tank so that they can zip around. Think of them as a high-energy dog who needs a big yard to run in! It pays to do your research on the species you purchase. Every one will have its own specific individual needs.by RainyGray9/8/2016Was this answer helpful? (6) (3)Was this answer helpful?
- General rule is 1 inch of fish for every gallon. For example. 5 fish that are 2" long.by TKAB8/5/2016Was this answer helpful? (9) (5)Was this answer helpful?
- Your betta can be a very active, and even an exciting potential community fish. I suggest at least 5.5 gallons if alone, 10 gallons or more if as a community fish. That little cup it was sold in at the store is ONLY SHORT-TERM TEMPORARY HOLDING! YOUR BETTA WILL EVENTUALLY DIE IF KEPT IN A "FISH BOWL". If attempting a community betta, I suggest a half dozen orange dano's (or similar schooling, semi-aggressive, hearty fish) in the community tank FIRST! Always introduce a betta to an established environment. In my experience, it appears the betta fish actually acts as a betta fish, instead of a dominant alpha fish, when introduced to an established school in a new tank. If you put fish in with the betta after that... you will get mixed results. The betta might leave the new fish alone, or it might try and kill them. Either way, your beta WILL be more active in a larger tank with a low gph filter, or especially... as a community fish introduced properly.by PleasantPain11/5/2012Was this answer helpful?

- You will need a top to the tank, a heater, gravel, etc. Suggest you do research on the web. Bettafish.com is a good place to start. Lots of info and help. Also can get answers to your questions.by TicTacFriend10/15/2012Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- gravel and decor, but you might need an air pump, airline tubing for the air pump i suggest buy the tubing from pet co or pets mart, a filter and cartridges which you change every 2-4 weeks and water conditioner.by ALTHEPAL556/14/2012Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- He's probably not happy because let's face it, all fish want a ton of room to swim around and just have a good time. All you need is the tank, some gravel and plants (optional) and a 5-10 gal or 10-15 gal filter. Be sure to leave the water out over night before you put him in because since it is a large amount of water you want the chlorine to have a change to get out of there so it doesn't cause stress on him. Hope this helps even a littleby jenny346/9/2012Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- I'm sure you've moved on my now but for future customers in addition to this tank a betta would need some form of lid (some bettas jump), a filter and a small heater (unless you keep your home pretty warm year round because bettas do best between 75 adn 82 degrees Fahrenheit). Probably also gravel and decorations but that's as much for you as your betta.by Misitic996/9/2012Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- Betta fish never seem too happy lol. My mom just raised 23 babies and they were kept in small 1 cup jars. And their parents are in 1 gallon tanks. They don't really need anything added to this tank besides a light and if you want a small filter. But be careful because they can get overstressed in large aquariums and their fins will actually fall off. So ya I recommend keeping it in a 1 gallon. but if you want to risk it you don't really need anything for this tank.by Prtpsarta11/19/2012Was this answer helpful? (0) (8)Was this answer helpful?
- My betta loves plants and caves to explore. He is always going inside of his little cave and laying on the plants to rest.by 2011MomOf311/19/2012Was this answer helpful? (2) (1)Was this answer helpful?
