Uhm, no
These fish you're referring to are to be held in groups rather then alone and starting at a tank size of MIN 45g.

How about a Betta and ghost shrimp?
Bare in mind a 10g is very small tank, so no active fish like Danios work. And no bigger growing fish neither (they will need room lol)

Do you have hard or soft water (meaning what's the number to you pH & KH)?

Well its very hard to suggest any fish w/out knowing that and the part where the tank size limits you quit a bit

for a ten IMO if you want a bit of activity and some nice color i would do about 3-5 MALE guppies.. no females or you will get over populated in about a week LOL..if you do any of the live bearers try to get males only and with a ten only a few platties are nice and they get some beautiful color to them... other ideas could be inverts only like a shrimp and or snail set up or mixed.
