    Going to the fish store tonight so hopefully I can figure this out before I leave.

    Is there room to add Ghost Shrimp like two or three to my son's 10 gal tank?

    I would add 2 more flame tetras and you could add easily 10 ghost shrimp.

    In terms of fish, I think your tank is fully stocked. There's not much room in a 10g for 2 proper schools of fish.
    Adding 6-8 ghost shrimp would be fine. They don't add much to the bioload of the tank :)

    They didn't have any Ghost Shrimp last night at the store. Is there anything else you would recommend for cleaning in a 10 gallon tank because my husband doesn't like the Ghost Shrimp.

    Cleaning what? You shouldn't need a cleaning crew in any tank, much less a 10 gallon.

    I personally think you're over stocked already. I would rehome the flame tetras then I'd get a decent sized group of RCS or ghost shrimp.
