    Its a common mistake,most likely due to the wrong person selling fish.
    The filter is fine for that tank.
    I only mentioned my tank with the Black Phantoms and Neons to point out that I have seen fish that school with other types of fish. These are not fish that are together with my Danios. The Danios are in their own tank and have a Chinese Algae Eater as a roommate until he gets to big and mean. I am talking about seperate tanks I dont have all these types of fish all mixed together in one little 10gal. If overstocking is the "common mistake" are you referring to rest assured my tanks are only moderately packed. I would like to give my Danios a little more space (5 of them in a 10gal) eventually when a larger tank free's but for now they seem fine with frequent tank care.

    Ahh yes of course. I have to give my LFS credit though it is a little individually owned shop and the owner made me fully aware that the chinese algae eater would work well for a little while and would eventually grow too large for a 10 gallon and too aggressive for it's tankmates.
