Rasbora & Tetra overstocked in a 10g?

My LFS said I would be ok with a group of Brilliant Rasbora and (blood)Tetras in my 10g tank. So got 4 of each..filtration is a HOB Top Fin 30

aqua advisor calculated that I would be overstocked with just the rasbora alone b/c they could grow to 3".
wikipedia says they would get no larger than 2 inches.

any thoughts?

I don't keep either fish, but that does sound overstocked. If those are bloodfin tetras, I don't think either of those fish are suitable for a 10G.

If you want a school, I would look at fish that stick closer to 1" like harlequin rasbora, celestial pearl danio, or neon tetras instead. There are several others that would work too.

I'm in agreement, the tank is overstocked. It's just too small for those particular fish sadly.
