Need ideas for ten gallon tank

I have a used ten gallon( it holds water) ... It will have double filtration... ie two filters(not used) , a viso therm 50 watt(not used ) and the pink light it came with... I have variety of colored gravel and will have live plants...
I would like ideas as to what would be good... I like colorful and fairly active fish... Ones I dont want cause I have them : Bettas ( have 3 love them dearly), white clouds and preacox rainbows...

Any ideas greatly appreciated..

I would personally go with dwarf rainbowfish

Threadfin rainbows (LOVE to jump btw) or blue eyed poponettas
or even Pseudomugil gertrudae

Also, badis badis species would work in a species only tank

How about a shellie tank? You would have to change your substrate to sand though and get lots of shells for them to live in!

I second the reccomendation for dwarf rainbows. The threadfin is wicked...I'd love to have some...if only I had the room.
