The smallest goldfish need 30Gs. Zebras need a school of 5 in a 20G.

Wait - perhaps I'm getting confused with the conversions. I don't use gallons I use litres. How big EXACTLY is a 10 gallons?

But, yeah, my honest mistake sorry. No Pleco in a 10 gallon. Maybe some snails, or neon (but only if you are to be feeding him a sufficient amount and he isn't aggressive).

ChoclateBetta, you are right, certain fish DO need certain sized tanks. But some people cannot afford to have the pristine size that they do best in. But I do agree.
