Stocking options for 10 gal planted

Wonder what some good fish for a 10 gal would be. Also any plant suggestions you have would be great also.

I like Lilly pads alot and in my old 10 gallon i had a sail-fin Mollie, sunburst wag,dalmatian Mollie, 2 ghost shrimp, fancy guppy, balloon Mollie and one skirted tetra but those usually like to be with other tetras, mine was happy though. later when one of my mollies died i got a male beta and he was fine with all the other fish even the guppy. Hope that helps :)

My 10G has:
5 danio's (3 zebra's,2 leopards) buying another leopard this weekend
5 guppies (1 male,4 female)
3 neon Tetra's (im going to add 3 cardinal tetra's to make up the groupl)
1 "feeder shrimp" that refuses to die
Apart from some more shrimp that will be a 100% capacity stocked tank.

Plants are Anubias (on bogwood),Amazon sword,Java moss,Hair grass and "reed type plant" & a couple of other plants I dont know :P

a lot of stuff will work in a 10 gallon tank. lots of tetras, dwarf gouramis, guppies, mollies, dianos, shrimp, some small rainbowfish, ect. im thinking about starting up a 7.5 gallon cube, ill have a pair of dwarf german blue rams and a small school of neons and cories, and a bunch of shrimp. almost any plant is good for a 10 gallon as long as you keep up with trimming and prunning, the only ones i would say no to are some bigger swords.

Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.
