Yes fin nipping and Danio's, all danio's need a minimum of a 20 long tank if not bigger. They are very active swimmers and will pace your tank all day! So being a 2 gallon...yeah they wouldn't be very happy lol. There's really nothing else you can put it tanks that are smaller than 5 gallons. You could do a young Nerite snail but eventually they'd grow up all the same...so yeah.

Zebra Danios should be in a 20g long minimum due to their activeness, they need that big base footprint.

No fish can go in a 2g unless it's a Betta.

Yeah, they just like to make money, they don't care about you or your fish unless it's like a really good small, non-chain store or something but the bigger ones will always try to get your money, it's sad but true I hope the little danio will be fine ^_^
