    -planted corydoras habrosus tank, 6 corydoras
    -planted tank, 1 apistogramma cacatuoides pair or other apisto pair
    -planted shelldweller tank with multifasciatus or signatus

    No cories go in a 10 gallon. Minimum is 15 gallon if they are dwarf cories. There are many reasons why they need to be in at least 20 gallons if you get regular cories. I would suggest the planted tank with an apisto pair. @Anders247

    Neon tetras need at least 15 gallons if not 20 gallons.

    So do the harlequins

    I would put 3 ADF in this tank maybe with a couple of snails

    Is it a standard 10 gallon? If not, what're the dimensions?

    What about the shellies?

    Shellies would work but I'm not sure how they'd do with plants.

    You could try Livebearers. You could keep a large amount. You would get to watch generations of them. You would get to see cute fry.
    5 gallon
    Heterandria formosa – Least Killifish
    Neoheterandria elegans – Tiger Teddy
    poecilopsis-gracilus

    10 gallon
    Girardinus metallicus – Metallic Girardinus
    Limia nigrofasciata (Hump-backed Limia, Black-barred Limia)
    Poecilia wingei – Endler’s Livebearer


    You could keep Livebearers. They do great with plants. You would get to watch them breed and grow up. You would get to see cute fry. I would recommend aquabid as a source.
