zebras probably shouldn't be in a 10 gallon, as they like lots of room to swim around. If you absolutely have to have them you could have about 6 or so, by themselves. If you have other fish don't have less than 4. They will get aggressive if they feel lonely.

Actually using the one inch of fish per gallon, you would only be able to have like 4 or 5. But I don't think they would be too happy with limited amount of space to swim

Oh, mine is (the others were, RIP ) pretty small, only about 3/4 in...do they get bigger than that?
And yes they would not be as happy in a 10 gallon.

Oh I'm sorry Emma One of mine died recently-- I did have 6 (one of the adults, he was almost 3 inches long) It's so sad
