I don't think it matters which. You could also add a school of 6 nano fish like ember tetra, celestial pearl danio or chili rasbora.

Personally I would avoid honey gouramis in a tank that small. Some of them have been bred with thicklipped gouramis so their size can be a bit unpredictable and some specimens get much too big for a 10g tank. I would stick with a single croaking gourami or dwarf gourami or else a couple of sparkling gouramis.

+1 on this Combo. I have a 10 heavily planted with Cherry Shrimp, 6 Celestial Pearl Danios, a pair of Scarlet Badis, Rabbit snails, and occasionally Ablino Bristlenose fry. I find myself staring at it a lot more than my SW tank.
You can do some pretty cool looking things with planted tanks like:
