Hi Adam,
Welcome to AA!

Your 10g is at max capacity with the fish you have. (the neons like swimming room) Also your gourami would love to have some floating plants. (he told me so).

For floating plants I like to use Hornwort because it looks pretty neat and it grows pretty fast. I bought some for my pond about 3 weeks ago and put one piece of it in my ten gallon. After about 2 weeks it had doubled in size.

There is also duckweed which grows pretty fast. The individual plants are very small. When they are about to divide the single leaf looks like a clover with 2 roots coming down. It provides a thin carpet of floating leaves.

Riccia is also pretty good. It also grows fast and gets thicker than duckweed. With a lot of light it will sink to the bottom and grow on rocks and driftwood. Then with lots of light and CO2 it will form tiny bubbles on it's leaves (photosynthesis) which looks very pretty.

There is also the Ceratopterus species (Floating Water Sprite). I've never had this before so I can't really tell you about it.

Have fun with your ten gallon!
