Tetra Tank

I'm starting a new tank with Bala sharks and tetras. Its a 10 gallon tank and i was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to what kinds of tetrad i should get. I'm looking for about 4 different kinds. I know i want Neon tetras and I saw this cool kind at one of my local petstores, but im not sure what its called. So if anyone has any suggestions about two other types, all of your comments and/or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

-2 common goldfish
-1 Pleco

-3 Bala Sharks
-3 Neon Tetras
-3 Lemon Tetras
-3 X-Ray Tetras
-3 Glass Bloodfin Tetras

-2 Goldbelly Newts

Lemon Tetras would be your best bet due to their small size and will fit in your 10 gallons tank. The other choices will soon outgrow the tank if kept in shoals as they grow larger than other tetras.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

I was wondering are you planning on upgradeing the 10gallon with the bala sharks?

They will out grow the 10gallon in no time.
