10g TALL or SHORT

I want to know which one to buy. I like the tall better because it fits on my small bedside table. But is tall ok for fish that like to Swim in schools? I want CPD's.

In my opinion, CPDs will do better in an aquarium which has a larger footprint. My CPDs tend to spend the majority of their time toward the bottom of the water column foraging, defending small territories, or sparring with one another (in my experience both male and female fish spar). Here is a helpful link, if you haven't already come across it: Danio margaritatus.

With rare exception a large footprint is better, however if the footprint of the 10 tall is better, then go for it, but I would recommend a beta or cherry shrimp colony or something not schooling for it instead

I'd go with the 10 regular if stocking CPD'S.

But 10 gallon talls are super cool and for that reason i'd reconsider stock. Maybe neons or harlequins?
