You could do them in a 10gal. But think of it as keeping goldfish in warm water.. You wouldn't want to do that. Sena pointed this out to me, and I pointed it out to Bombalurina. xD
Also, they are rarely captive bred, so most are wild caught, or only a few generations captive bred, which makes them more sensitive since they haven't been made hardy over generations of captivity. Other danios have been captive bred over many generations and become more hardy to warm water, but these guys have only been in the trade about 5 years, and are difficult to breed. Stick with warm water fish :p
(on a side note, one of my dream tanks would be a coldwater tank with galaxy rasboras and hillstream loaches<3)
taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
