Too big in all dimensions.. The shape is perfect if I could get it smaller though.

No offense, but just because "somebody likes it that way" doesn't mean the VT girls should suffer. What if your wife said she liked them to be kept in drinking glasses, would you oblige?
Solving my own problem would be linking the tank with those dimensions, but as I have not found one problem is still the same as when it began.
These 4 VT girls would probably do fine in a 1/2 gallon. When they were in my 20 tall with the CT's they were never more then 6" apart from each other. Even now with them in this tiny ass 2.5g they are always on top of each other. I don't see it as inhumane at all keeping them in a smaller then normal tank. Keeping them in the 2.5g there in now, certainly too small. But again my intentions are not to keep them in it.
The bookshelf is a consideration. Really though the beauty of the fish would be lost in it with it as low as it is sitting across the back edge of the table.

+1.....Exactly or even more comparative what if your wife liked you in a tiny room where it was much too small.......like bahamanut said no offense but it needs to be bigger such as 8x14x14
For your 1st quote it makes me wonder if you read the thread?
For the 2nd, well I didn't want to get along with what the wife said then one of us could move out. So either these fish get the tank there going to get on my table or they can be re-homed to some random person on CL that will probably feed them to an Oscar or something.
People really need to get off there high horses.. Not every fish is going to get its own 5 gallons. Its just not feasible. Currently I have 18 betta's & other then this group the smallest any of them has is my orange CT male Micro who lives in a 2 gallon hex at work on my desk. I am out of places to put them & since they cant get along in the sorority, but they get along just fine with each other they get a smaller tank.
