Well after doing some reading from my test results my tank is cycled. Since it has cycled I added 6 rasbora heteomorpha and a Chinese algae eater. I had some algae growing some green and some brown since I added the algae eater he actually got the situation under control.

Chris that algae eater will get to big for a ten gallon tank. Also they can get really mean when they mature. They will also stop eating algae when they mature. A "better" suited algae eater would be an Oto catfish for your tank. They do best in groups and I think 3 would be fine in your tank provide you water parameters are ok for them.
