On the issue of the Ram, I would not suggest a Bolivian Ram for a 10g, there is not enough space. It will feel confined, and that often means aggression beyond the norm. As noted in the profile, 20g is minimum for one Ram.

The "dwarf" fish suggestions above are all good. Ember Tetra, Celestial Pearl Danio, Mosquito Rasbora are all included in our profiles; I know the latter wasn't mentioned, but it is very close to the Ember. The danio prefers basic water, the other two soft acidic water. If your water is on the hard and basic side of neutral, the danio would be better. Check the info in the profiles, these fish all have some special concerns.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
