Here are some of my ideas

5 male guppies

OR

1 dwarf gourami

OR

1 male betta! I have a few pictures of my boys in my albums so you could see what kind you want!

You can overstock the tank a tiny bit but not by much. Overstocking is alright as long as it's not overboard and you maintain the tank well.

If you don't want to go overstocked, you could go with
A dwarf gourami
Or
5 guppies
Or
A betta and a couple guppies (if the betta is calm enough)

If you are okay with being slightly overstocked and having upped water changes, you could go with

A dwarf gourami and 5 neons OR 3 guppies
Or
7-8 guppies
Or
A betta (if he plays nice) and a 10 neons OR 6-7 guppies max

A 10 gallon doesn't give you much room sorry to say. Mollies need 30 gallons, platys need similar... It just doesn't give you too much space for fish.

An 8 gallon with a dwarf gourami and barbs wouldn't work. Barbs need a lot of swimming space. You would only be able to do the dwarf and one barn at max and that would cause many problems.

The barb would be stressed.
The barb would nip the gourami to no end.
The barb needs to be schooling.

Guppies are really your only option with a dwarf gourami maybe a shrimp or two if the other fish leave them alone.

You could get two pea puffers for the tank. That's another idea

Pea puffers really need 5g each. And yes, I believe the extra 2g makes a difference! Lol
