Six line wrasse- much too active for 10 gallon.
Pseudochromis- depending on species, MIGHT work as a solitary fish. Probably too aggressive to mix with other fish. 10 gallons is a small territory!
Cardinal- I can't think of a species that should be in a 10 gallon.

Personally, I think that a 10 gallon would be an absolute bare minimum for an ocellaris clown. I wouldn't recommend stocking anything else with it, but since the conservative approach to stocking (sadly) seems to have fallen out of favor with many of our members, they're probably going to tell you I don't know what I'm talking about. LOL. If you must stock another fish stick to something small and relatively inactive like a clown goby or one of the smaller species of shrimp goby.
I never even mentioned any of the fish you listed.

Severum mama, all the fish you listed weren't included in my stocking list. I just want to see how it goes. I'm not looking for anything big and spectacular with this tank, but just a small saltwater aquarium. It doesn't have to be anything special. I just want to see how it goes from here. Thank you for your input, though.

Right. I quoted another person's post in this thread, and explained my reasons for disagreeing with that particular post.

Going to start setting up and cycling either this weekend or next weekend, whenever my Mom can take me to the LFS. Thanks for checking in on me. I'm planning on starting real soon, so excited!!!

Nice how do you plan on cycling it? If you are considering a fish in cycle i wouldnt. Its expensive, more work, and stressful. Haha i threw in 2 cubes of mysis shrimp and waited. That simple haha

Um idk I didnt really think about that. I don't think my LFS sells the salt water. I will probably have to mix it myself. Are there any tools I need?
