    Hi there just got a 40 litre tank only going to have a small school of danios or something as to not be cruel!my question is what filter? I got rid of the stock filter that came with the tank as it had awful reviews. in the middle of a fish less tank cycle with a stingray 5(which is advertised as for up to 25 litres) where as my tank as stated above is a 40 litre do you think this will be sufficient?or do you have any suggested filters?want to get it right first time.

    Danios need 20 gallons plus (about 80 liters) a stingray 15 would work better.

    Yes, you would need a 75 litre tank for danios. I would recommend 8 CPDs

    Chili Rasboras might work as well.
