Thinking about doing a smaller tank on my desk

I was considering getting a smaller tank for my desk. Maybe a 10 gallon? After thinking about stocking options, I was interested in an African dwarf frog. I was considering one of them along with perhaps some neon or black neon tetras, maybe a guppy or two? Also, I was considering a snail for the tank too, but I'm limited in knowledge about them. For example, if I get one mystery snail, will it breed out of control until I have like 100?
Any suggestions for my stocking ideas would be great, or even your own stocking ideas.

I think everything you are thinking about will work. Get only make guppies if you get them.
The snail will not reproduce like that. And if by chance you got a fertilized female, they lay there eggs in a large clump out of the water. So they are easily removed.

I think I will go with that stocking idea then. I am shopping around for the tank now. I was also wondering if I can use Seachem products like Prime with the frog and the snail or would they need special chemicals?
