10 gallon stocking

I was thinking of getting a dwarf gourami and 6 regular guppies. Opinions? I know this might be a little overstocking, but if I maybe get an air stone and do a larger tank clean each week?

That seems like to much for a 10 honestly I would either 6 guppies or just a dwarf gourami with maybe 5 celestial pearl danios.

if you do guppies make sure you have 2 females for every male so you would need 4 females and 2 males... or you could get all males but watching the fry grow is pretty cool!!

Unless you absolutely have somewhere or someone to take/give the fry to, don't get female guppies. You will get overrun very quickly.

I want to get females and watch the fry grow but I only have that 10 gallon tank and a 2.5 betta tank.
