10 gallon stocking

Well my redone tank is filling out quite nicely I right now have
7 neons
3 amano shrimp
3 cherry shrimp.
I was planning on adding maybe 3-6 more neons. Then either a trio of clown killifish or something else anyone have suggestions.

The only issue I see here is the small tank size. For that reason, while I would normally encourage more neons (the larger the group the better for characins), if you intend adding the killifish (which i assume is the species Epiplatys annulatus) I would not add more neons. The two fish should manage fine together, it is just the numbers. I assume the tank is well panted, as both species like lots of plants around them, and floating especially.

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]

Yes heavily planted. And ya I know the small tank size that is why I am checking I will probably just add to my neons then.
