Well, no luck on finding any of the above fish. I did go to one LFS that was rather nice, and the owner/operator was very knowledgeable. He agreed with you, Byron, for the most part in terms of what I should be looking for, and said he didn't have much that would work in my tank. He did have one suggestion, however. 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.
