That was threadfin rainbows. Unlike the site here, he said the males tend to not go much about 1.5 inches, and 3, maybe 4 would work.
I'll figure it out with the suggestions you have all provided. They are all very nice fish. The next step is figuring out what shrimps/snails to put in there. What would stay small and be compatible with the above mentioned fish?
Threadfin Rainbowfish is a similar fish to the others mentioned. I've not personally kept this species, i think Mikaila has, probably a few others. A small group in a 10g is nice because the males will display more. But otherwise, I would assume this fish is a possibility. It is included in our profiles, click the name.
