The strips aren't very accurate, get the API Master Test Kit, that tank is fairly overstocked, the dwarf gouramI alone needs a 20 gallon at least.

Welcome to fishlore!
I agree, the master test kit is better, test strips are inaccurate and also more expensive to use in the long term.
And yeah, unfortunately all those fish need a bigger tank.

Imo, a dwarf by itself does fine in a 10g. And personal opinion, but a school of neons also do fine solo in a 10g. I've found that neons aren't really *that* active like serpaes are, and do fine in smaller aqua compared to most schooling fish.

Unfortunately it is quite overstocked.

Better to pick only one of those species only in a 10 gallon.

You're overstocked. None of those fish really are suitable for a 10 gallon long term. These would however be perfect for a 20 gallon long tank if you wanted to upgrade! You would even have room for a couple other fish like guppies or something

There really aren't many fish that can live in a 10 gallon tank
