Big enough for glass catfish?

Ok so I'm really interested in keeping some glass catfish. I know they need to be in a group of 6, but I was wondering if I could pull off 3 in a 10 gallon. Lots of swimming space and they would be the only fish in the tank besides shrimp. Here's a pic of the tankClick image for larger version

Ummm with glassies I'd say even 4 would be pushing it- and that would be for a 20 gallon. For some cool looking fish for a 10 gallon, maybe try harlequin rasboras or maybe pencilfish. Just some off-the-wall suggestions that are a bit different!

I wouldn't put glass catfish in anything less than a 20g, personally. There are still quite a few types of fun, interesting fish to put in a 10g, however - Chili rasbora and CPDs are a couple of my favorites, and there are many more to choose from.

Idk, I'd throw 6 in a 20g. I have some in my 150g and they hardly move, just sit under plants and chill most of the time.

Mine tend to stay in one place too. I would do 6 in a ten gallon but wouldn't have any additional bioload in the tank.
