I heard the same thing about tetras though that they really need a 20g tank.

Also would it be ok to have a small chichild like a ram instead of a betta or would that be Ill- advised?

Also I saw some Chinese algae eating shrimp that were quite big the last time I went, does anyone know anything about them.

Neons are the one exception to that rule. As for rams... I really wouldn't put one in anything less then a 20, preferably a 30. You could add a dwarf gourami for a centerpiece.

I agree! 10 gal for zebras is ok but not ideal. I love ottos I had four with 2 left....its been a couple months now so hopefully everyone is good! I love the neons I have 5 in my 30 gal and they are like a little spark of light never heard of the betta with that many tank mates though? Female-yes Male-not so much.Mine would keel them all! LOL He lives with 2 snails.

Well First of all I need to find some place for my danios. I don't hold a great compassion for fish like I have observed with some people online (not particularly on this forum) but just flushing them all seems like a waste. Does anyone know if petco takes fish?

petco should take back the danios. You prob can't get your money back, but they're really good about taking fish back. I know petsmart won't do it but at least my neighborhood petco will. They're happy to make the buck!

Good to hear. And Im thinking a gourami as the centerpiece fish, they sort of have that round look. How would rasboras work out for the schooling fish. It's just that i've recently heard that danios and tetras need more space and I guess as a result my danios are aggressive. And do shrimp eat plants?

Ottos would be great! Very peaceful make sure you get them from reputable source...I read alot about these guys online and depending where there come from could have been roughed up alot. Get 3 or 4 they are social little guys like corries good luck!

Harlequin rasboras are awesome I have 6 in my 10 gal hex and they are beautiful...like an iridescent copper color with that black triangle beautiful!
