Welcome to AA.
We all have some pretty definite ideas about what fits in a 10g.
AqAdvisor is a tool that can help you try out virtual stocking plans and then you can ask our opinions.
If you are fairly new I'd recommend a lovely Betta with some Ghost Shrimp and a Snail. Live plants will give you more to look at.
Instead of a Betta...not with a Betta
You could do
Endlers ( like mini Guppies )
I love Celestial Pearl Danios (CPDs). Mine look like tiny trout. I have 7 in my 10g with Red Cherry Shrimp ( RCS).
This is a more intermediate level tank. I have lots of live plants.
I started it as just a Shrimp tank. If I'd stayed with just Shrimp and Otos I'd still see babies, now the fish eat them. So the babies have to hide.
A 10g is too small for most common petstore fish IMHO
. Neons and Platies need more room IME.
So if you want to do something different consider an RCS tank.
My tank before fish. Otos are the only Shrimp Safe fish.
