What to stock?

I have a 10 gallon tank with HOB filter and black gravel, I have some fake plants. I have a heater if needed. Any suggestions for cheap fun fish to have?

dwarf puffers are notorious fin nippers and do best in a species tank you could have 3 dwarf puffers in there. cory cats are cool and easy to take care of you can mix different ones and they will still shoal together. my ten gallon has a betta and two julii cory cats and one albino. you could do a few cory cats and a centerpiece like a betta or dwarf gourami

Google nano fish as they all work great in a 10g. Something like Badis Badis and Red Cherry Shrimp makes for a nice looking tank. Endlers are one of my favorite nano fish. We stock all males in our Fluval Edge 12g. They are very colorful little fish!

I googled all those and they were all pretty cool but I want the most active and colorful fish possible

Celestiel pearl danios are a great option.

I really like the celestiel pearl danios, but I feel like getting fish like this would be a hassle because they aren't at the local pet store and i don't know how I feel about shipping fish

A few male platies would be fun. Cheap, colorful, and comical!

Endler's are colorful if you get all males. All male guppies would work also and come in a lot of colors. I'm not fond of platies in a 10g only because they have a higher bio load and you can only but a couple in.
