Guppys look pretty nice and are tropical. Is your 10 gallon tank cycled?

A seller on here has CPDs for sale. Super cute, kinda shy, but I love mine. I have 6 in my 10g planted tank.

How did you cycle it? Letting it run empty doesn't cycle it, I'm afraid, regardless of what the fish stores tell you. You might want to give this a read (particularly the first section on cycling) prior to getting fish: Guide to Starting a Freshwater Aquarium - Aquarium Advice

A 10 gal tank has some options but it is also somewhat limited. Most tetras, danios, rasboras (schooling fish) are active and need more room than a 10 gal. Nano fish are good (ember tetra, chili rasbora, celestial pearl danio) but they can be hard to find locally. A few guppies or a couple of platys would work. Or a single betta would work as well. Read the two types of cycling in that guide I gave you though and decide which you'd rather do.
