I certainly do not agree with that recommendation. The common black molly can attain 3 inches for a male, and 5 and even 6 inches for a female. A 10g is just not sufficient space for one of these.
The fact that people's fish may not attain these sizes is more likely because they are in too small a space or inappropriate water parameters/conditions, and they fail to develop properly and die early.
