That might be too much for a ten gallon tank, rummy nose tetras get about 3 inches long and need to be in schools of at least 5.

White cloud minnows might be a better substitute

I have 3 cories and they are happy and school together..you wouldn't need 5, but the more you could have..obviously the better.
