So I have a 10 gallon tank and I think I've decided partly how to stock it. I'm thinking about some cory cats and some shrimp and also another type of fish that will swim at the top. What kind of Cory and shrimp could I put in and also how many? Also what fish could I put at the top?

if you go with shrimp I would do the following:
*1 Honey Gourami
*10-20 amano shrimp
* a bottom dweller ( most corys are "supposed" to be in 20g)

I've heard that honey gourami are also too big for a 10 gallon. Aren't there dwarf cities I could get? What other bottom feeders are there?

there is a goby but he likes cold water. only one I can think of.
Aren't those the stiphodon species?

If I recall correctly, a peacock gudgeon could work in a 10 gallon.
