Will this tank work?
 
2 Tiger Barbs (about 3/4" each)
2 Serpae Tetras
2 Zebra Danios

all in a 10 gallon tank. Is there any more fish I can add or am I filled up already?

it will not work as all those fish are schooling species and require them to be in groups of 6 or more. Return the ones you dont like and finish a school first. you might be able to get passed 2 schools, but for now, just keep six of one of those species.

You can actually keep 2 species. But it will have to be danios and either of the first two. Both stay in different levels. One thing that bothers me is the first two are known fin nippers. I'd stick with other tetras than just serpaes. Lemon tetras or diamonds will make lovely choices.:love: :mrgreen:
