I will completely agree! Wow, that is too small. I tried my Red Cherry Shrimp in a 3 gal, and moved them back to a 5 gallon. There are way to many complications with a tank that small - keeping the water parameters stable etc. The fish you have neons and danios are schooling fish and need a group to feel safe and comfortable. Please find a larger tank somewhere or re-home your fish.

A 3 gallon is only suited for invertabrates (snails and shrimp). It's possible to keep a Betta alive, but still a bit small for them. A true stable cycle capable of supporting fish is also excessively difficult in anything smaller than 5 gallons.
6 danios should be housed in a minimum of a 20 gallon long aquarium. Click on the shaded Zebra Danio name to read over their profile and care requirements.
