How Many Fish Per Gallon of Water?

Answer

You can keep fish as pets in your home; they are normally kept in aquariums. The number of fish kept in an aquarium generally depends on the size and type of the fish. But as a general rule in fish keeping, it is that only one fish should be kept in a gallon of water.

One should put 1 inch of fish per gallon of water in your tank or aquarium. This will reduce overcrowding, and it will give the fish a longer life and to avoid smelly and dirty water. However, if you have other accessories in the tank such as filters, it is recommended that you have 1 1/2 inch of fish per gallon.
The most common rule to allow enough room in an aquarium is to have one inch of fish per each gallon of water. The larger the fish are, the more waste they make and the more water is needed.
