answer 2
I worked for an aquatics center when I was younger - The general rule for tank size was 1 inch of fish per gallon. (e.g. Four 1" fish will need 4 gallons)

Make note of the full grown size of the fish - If you buy 3 fish that will grow up to 10" then you will need to have a 30 gallon tank. You can buy smaller and work your way up, but that can get costly.

The fish need room to swim and "play". Too many fish in too small of a space can get very cramped and, depending on what kind of fish you have, this can cause territorial fighting and fin-nipping.

Yes you can use a heater, it even has an extra plastic cutout on top if you wish to add one and not ruin the aesthetics.

Hey dormkid, it is more of a Diamond shape, but would be considered a triangle for placement purposes.

Is is a triangle, but the back is flat. The "apex" of the triangle -- where the sides meet and come to a point -- is the FRONT. Not your typical corner tank.

Question

What would be a great first pet for a boy?

Looking to get something for a 5 year old that I would do most of the "work" taking care of. He loves animals but I know that at 5 years old he is not ready for the responsibility and I am okay with taking on that role.

Yes. He could feed them and help you clean the tank (I guess), but that's basiclly all you do. Fish are very easy to take care of, just make sure he doesn't,
A) Put his fingers in the water (other then when helping change it)
B) If purchasing a thermometer, make sure he can't break it open, because Mercury, which is in all thermometers, CAN be fatal if ingested.
But overall, a fish would be a great investment.
P.S. Glofish were entertaining to watch swim around and stuff, just enjoy them while they last, because they are NOT long-living fish.

Depends on what you want.

Do not put school fish in here, it cannot handle more than 3 or 4 small fish.
I currently have a betta and two ghost shrimp who hang out pretty well.
