Definitely one of the types of shellies or another dwarf cichlid species. I would look at the various Apistogramma species as well.

No apistos in a 10 gallon
You can do she'll dwellers
Or a shrimp tank with snails
What I have in mine is
Lots of live plants
1 male betta
5 neon tetras
3 african dwarf frogs
2 mystery snails

Really? No apistos in a 10 gallon? Cause i have seen it done many times successfully. As long as you do it properly, it is not that big of a challenge. I'm quite confident wyrenegade can provide accurate information and I will agree with a pair of smaller apistos, such as apistogramma agassizi or cacatuoides. You would be limited to the pair and *possibly* a small group of nano dither fish, like chili rasbora, celestial pearl danio, sudadanio axelrodi, etc

Oh ok, if they are going to be the only fish in the tank then that is fine, thought they would be with other fish
Don't know if OP would want only 2 fish in there

10 gallon tank

CPDs
Blue Eyed Rainbows or Threadfins
Micro Rasbora species
Scarlet Badis
Tiny Cories like C habrosus

There are some great choices among nano fish. Harder to find sometimes. Need plants usually.
