Cute and active little guys!

It looks like you have stocking issues, if you'd like to discuss them

Its a snowball shrimp. I have different varieties of dwarf shrimp.

Can you list the full stocking (species and numbers) of the tank? I can see a few species, but there might be more I missed

You should get 2 more Corys for the school, the white clouds are cold water fish. The rasboars like larger tanks.

Think you've two different species (C.habrosus and C.pygmaeus).
The rasboras are two different species as well think.

I'm going to be moving the Rasboras over to my 20 high gallon in the next month, when I move my albinos, pandas and honey gourami over to my 30 gallon, definitely plan on getting some more pygmies just like to get 3 fish at a time for my tanks.

As said the corys are not the same species
That's weird thought I had the same. They seem to be doing good though. Really active.

2 habrosus and 1 pygmaeus. Habrosus are bottomdwellers, pygmaeus midwaterdwellers.

The active behaviour shown is stress / adapting. I'd swap one species and get more of the other.

None of those fish are appropriate for a 10 gal.

Cories should be in larger groups of their own species (for small species like these, I'd go with at least 8 of each species), but they also need a bigger tank.

The minnows and rasbora should also be in larger groups of their own species.

Small groups are very stressful to these species.

Is there any way you can upgrade your tank?
