Hi, I purchased MAX-I Pre-Filter with plans to hook it up on my 10gal Guppy tank so i can add shrimp & protect any babies that may be born but when it arrived I noticed the package says for aquariums over 20gal so i was wondering if I can still use this or should I get something different ? Thank you

If it's the one by Aquarium Technology, on the box it says "Up to 20 gallons".  The next size up says "up to 40 gallons." 

I'm no expert, but I think larger is ok as long as it fits your equipment and you don't mind how it looks in the tank.  I installed one of Cory's nano sponge filter in the 2.5-gallon planted tank I set up for my boyfriend's niece to house her betta (who was living in a bowl...so this is a major upgrade, LOL). It's rated for aquariums 5 gallons but it works just fine...
