Browse through the fish profiles, there are several suitable species under Cyprinids, some under Characins, a few under Catfish, some under Badids, and Atherinids. Look for small fish, and check water parameters as many of these will be wild caught and require fairly specific parameters. Minimum tank size is given for each, aliong with numbers 9for shoaling species) and any compatibility issues.
The "normal" tetra are really too large for a 10g, so look at the smaller species in the above lists.
