Types of fish for my 10 gallon tank
I currently have a 10 gallon aquarium with 4 neon tetras, 1 bamboo shrimp, and 1 sunset dwarf gourami. Anyone have any ideas of other fish/crustaceans?

But with this setup you will have an amazingly colourful display and all areas of the tank would be inhabited.
27 Gallon planted: Super Dragon Betta, Neon Tetras, Honey Gourami, Rummy Nose Tetra, Checker barbs, Bolivian Ram, Otocinclus, Amano shrimp, Assassin snails.
75 Gallon Reef: Ocellaris Clownfish pair, Firefish, Royal Gramma, Bangaii Cardinal, Midas Blenny, Coral Beauty Angelfish, Cleaner Shrimp, 18+ crabs and snails

I would just add more neons and get a good proper sized school in there. How many to add depends on how good your filtration is. I would advise against the GBR pair. I kept a single GBR in a ten gallon for about 6 months while I waited for his tank to be ready and it was just too small for even the one.~Manna

+1 to mo rams and how about you get the neom number up to 8, they need at least 6i hear some people say, "i kept a goldfish in a bowl and it lived for a year."
they don't know how lucky they were and all goldfish live at least 15 years in proper conditions.
that is equal to saying my human lived in his closet for 5 years!

Yeah I'd just get more neons and not worry about any more fish. Ten gallons fills up quick.

More neons. Dwarf gourami usually have a big personality and need their space...so focus on having a nice school of neons and maybe a couple more shrimp.
10g looks big, but it really isn't. The more you push the stock level, the harder it will be to keep clean and healthy.20 gallon with a male betta, neons, glowlights, and red cherry shrimp. (work in progess) Recently added a few LIVE plants and driftwood, Woooohoooo!

Pretty much agree with everyone up there. Add more neons and leave it at that. Even the Bamboo shrimp is a bit big for a 10gal. The ones I had for a hot minute from Petco were about 3-4" long. They're awesome shrimp, but you'd be better off having RCS or CRS or any variety of those. I feel like 10gals are on the large size of the nano tanks.
