perhaps shell dwelling cichlids, i think they're really the only ones small enough to live in 10 gallons but i could be wrong. grow out tanks usually need to be pretty large though.....

Well guess I'm not getting cichlids. Oh well. Time to do more research on Ember's, OMG they're gorgeous!! I'm going to try to get some driftwood tomorrow. Are Ember's best with plants or driftwood or does it really matter??

Check the Ember Tetra profile, it will help you. But to short-cut to the direct question, all characins are better with plants and chunks of wood and/or branches.

On other fish, a 10g is pretty small so you are bst with small fish. ET are fine. Corys on the substrate would be OK. A trio of the pygmy sparkling gourami could work.

Okay thank you :) Embers and Cories it is. Now time to obsessively research. I really need a social life >.<

Bolivian rams ( I assume the cichlids) are not going to go with anything but cichlids in the first place and secondly they will overgrow a 10 gallon in a short time. You could try a pack of 6 panda or albino Corydoras to keep the tank clean and they make it pretty.
