Honey gourami Cold water alternative

So I was wanting to keep 6 white cloud mountain minnows and a honey gourami in a 10g. And then I remembered white cloud mountain minnows are cold water fish. So do you know of any centerpiece fish for a 10 gallon tank that are coldwater. I know it will be overstocked but I have a 25 gallon sponge filter on it and am looking into putting live plants in. One more thing, it can't be super rare of a fish. The closest fish store is really small. And I don't really want to pay 30 dollar shipping for a single fish. It could be stuff as rare as rams but not like a croaking gourami. And it has to be a fish that can have 7.5 Ph. Sorry, a lot of requirements.

Hm. Maybe platys then, They get bigger then the minnows and do good in that temperature.

Do you think I could maybe keep a swordtail. I know they should have at least a 15 gallon but do you think with the filtration I have I could. Though they are very active fish.

Personally I wouldn't. Just because they are too big and active.

Any other suggestions, I know platys are similar, but they just don't pop like swordtails/gouramis do.

Maybe try honey gouramis if you can keep the tank warm at night

What about Gobies, any colorful ones (Or like a bumble bee gobies) I can't afford live foods.

Could I keep Gardneri Panchax Killifish in their, I think this fish would be okay from the little research I've done though. If so, how many 1 or 2 males.

Pygmy sunfish might be good too, but they're a little small (a little over 1 inch). Also peacock gudgeons.
