10 Gallon Ideas

Hey everyone, I have an empty 10 gallon that I want to fill this summer but I don't know what I should put in it.

I was thinking one of these things
- Inverts (Shrimp, snails, ??)
- Dwarf Frogs
- Crayfish

but it doesn't have to be.

I'm open to all ideas and suggestions and I'm going to start cycling my tank soon. On that subject, is there any preferred way I should cycle it? I completely emptied the tank out right now so I'm basically starting over.

Thanks!

I like the idea of a mixed invert tank (shrimp and snails). You could have several types of snail (MTS, mystery snails, nerites, pond snails, ramshorns) and maybe a few types of shrimp that will peacefully co-habitate. It would make for a lot of interesting invert activity.

Or, you could get some more unusual fish, maybe. What about a small colony of some type of dwarf shelldweller?
