    Shrimp and snails. You could also add a couple more guppies. Sorry, it's really easy to overstock a 10.

    I also agree with @LiterallyHydro

    You could keep your 3 males and get a couple Asian stone catfish. Or just add another guppy or two.

    Oh! I also forgot! Chili Rasboras would be another good option to look at.

    Are these fancy male guppies with big tails? I'd hesitate to put anything in there that might nip or harass them. Endler boys would harass them. If your water is as hard as guppies prefer, I wouldn't put any soft water fish, such as tetras or rasboras. Really, at the most, I'd put another fancy male guppy in there, assuming that everyone is getting along ;)

    You could try cherry or gold barbs. They're not really nippy or anything and stay pretty small

    Okay thanks . in that case I will mark them off the list. I think my best choice is to get 1 or 2 more guppies . that way their tails won't get nipped.

    Definitely no to the barbs. I had gold barbs that were about 3 inches long. Cherry barbs get to be about 2 inches long.

    I wouldn't do pygmy cories in a 10g, but I do think you could add asian stone catfish to this stock.
    Peacock gudgeons would also be an option.
