My friend had bought me a Guppy and two Neon's, and the two Neon's died, however I found them stuck to the filter, so not sure if it was my filter that got them, my water, or both.

What about housing male Guppies together? My two do fine now, but adding more? I just don't want to get females because I don't want a huge fry problem.

Any other fish suggestions? THANK YOU for all of the replies so far.
Unless you have had some type of filtration on the 10g that was rated for a 100g tank, they don't just get sucked up, they more then likely died and got then sucked that way.
The only way you'll know if the water is suitable for Neon or any other soft water fish is by testing it.

If you already have Guppy in it, get 2 more guys, some shrimp and be happy lol
Platy are like Guppy, Molly & Co if you are not 110% sure you get guys, you'll have a big fry issue real quick; given their sizes and activity its understandable why any online source would suggest a 20g tank for a group of those.

Platies are colorful, I'll have to look into that as long as I can be sure they are males. Sounds like the best plan for now, Angel (Guppies and some Shrimp)! Thanks again for all of your help!

No problemo! :) Platies have a really obvious godopium (sp?) if you get a wag variety. If you get ones that don't have black points, the godopium is transparent.

I'd say see if you have the room in your house, ask everybody for b-day's and Christmases for gift cards to your pet store of choice and buy a 30g tank and make that a nice community tank since you seem to like most livebearers
