Have you now tested your water? Do you know what the test results should look like?
Nitrite should be 0.0, anything above is dangerous (water changes should sort that)
Ammonia should also be 0.0, as it is also very poisonous
ph is usually about 7.0, but can be anything from 6.5 to 7.5 usually (depending on the fish)
Nitrate should be lower than 30, the lower the better. If yours is particularly high, more plants quickly reduce that.
Try to get all those tests done at your lfs, and record the exact results, do not let them say "yeah it's fine, so what do you want to buy?"
Also, you have said your tank is 10 gallons; your sig says 15 gallons..?
Good luck. :D
