No, I don't think a pygmy will work in a 10. The fish needs room to swim and grow. If you do not give it sufficient space, it won't make it. He'll likely keel over from stress and I think the best case scenario is that he'll develop head and lateral line erosion which disfigues the fish and I can only assume is painful.

It is a violation of federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labelling.

I agree, the pygmy would be too big even for your 20g tank,.

Just go ahead as planned and maybe you can upgrade next year to a tank that can hold what you want to put in it.

180g Reef - 60g Rimless Reef -90G FOWLR- 125g Malawi Cichlids- 40b REEF- 34g Fresh Planted-working on- 20L FOWLR- working on
I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
