Okay...these are all fish in the freshwater section of the tropical fish profile tab here on TFK that are suitable for a 10 gallon tank. They are also suitable for the 7.4 pH you have...a couple of them might say up to 7.2 pH, but its close enough to include. I wrote them out this way so they would highlight so you can click from here to look up their info.
So, take a look at these, see if any spark your interest. I would be interested in knowing what you decided on.
Oh, and the African Dwarf Frog profile says a way lower pH than you have, but these guys can be kept in your pH level with little issue. I have had mine in a 6.5 pH (recommended 6.0 pH) for almost 2 years now...the first 1.5 years his pH was a little higher than 7, but since moving the pH is lower due to the water where we live now.
Anyways, good luck...and I would love to see pictures!
