Yes footprint is more important, but a standard 20g tall or long is definitely going to have a bigger footprint than a standard 10g.

Most tanks that people use are the standard ones these days, with all these kits and such. I feel like Zebra Danios could be in a 10g technically if the tank was made specifically, the tank would be very short though, kinda like the Fluval Edge's first design.

Just a word of caution: RCS will die if the tank is not cycled and mature. For more assurance of positive results, wait until the aquarium has been cycled a couple of months. Even the lowest amount of ammonia or nitrites will kill shrimp while the Betta won't even notice.

I learned the above the hard (and expensive) way.

BTW, you can get 20+ RCS for $24.00 and free shipping from Matt's the only person from whom I buy shrimp. Tried others but his have been the healthiest and very dark red. And I like the shrimp towers; although my Thai Micro Crabs evicted the shrimp.
