You could do a school of small bodied tetras, you could have a nice little school.

Something that I recently acquired are Gurtrudae rainbows. They are really unique along with all of the other dwarf rainbows.

Mine are currently very young, small, and very hard to get a pic of. This is the best pic I have at the moment lol. But when they grow up. Amazing 😍

For a bottom feeder Pygmy corys would be cool they stay small so you could have a couple more in the small tank which they would appreciate a lot

My vote would be a betta but I just think that they're awesome.

One thing to be careful about is maintaining a steady temp in a 10g if you go the non-heater route.

Vietnamese white clouds (Tanichthys micagemmae) are gorgeous! I'm getting some least killifish (H. formosa) tomorrow...nice native livebearer that can tolerate cooler temps.

I keep a number of fish in unheated tanks but they're small and monitor water temp regularly: dwarf amber barbs, gardneri killies, clown killies, green rasboras.

Please know that bettas are not cold water fish, and do require tropical temperatures to be comfortable and to be active, happy and live long. I also recommend that if you have a filter, you use it, especially if you decide to go with goldfish. They produce a ton of waste and are messy eaters for the most part.

Fully agree! Just I'd recommend smaller Vietnamese minnows. I'm with them for years already... By evenings I watch to theirs harmless fights:
