Welcome to AA!! Stocking a 10 does limit you a little, but you definitely have options. A couple of my favorites are a shrimp tank, or a dwarf puffer, or just have nano fish.

Welcome! Shrimp are really cool, and are perfect for a five gallon tank. They would lok great with some nice plants!

Thank you guys for your suggestions, even though I said I didn't want a betta, would one male betta and a couple of shrimp work together? Sorry I'm new to the aquarist hobby!
