Rummy nose tetras?
 
well i think i decided since i first laid my eyes on these i thought of avideo game (of course) xD and remembered that red faced so idecided i want a school of 4-6of these with a dwarf gourami two snails and 3-4ghost shrimps in a ten gallon tank with a sandy substrate and lots of live plants including floating plants so is this possible? because id like to have these species in my tank

Rummynose tetras are active swimmers so they'd really appreciate a bigger tank than that, but it's probably do-able.

btw like okay i would get the snails (already have em) and place em first to establish territories and less disputes and put the 4-5ghost shrimp in the tank alltogether at first is it posible? in the same day? and then next week add 5rummy nose? so they dont freak out? i dont want to add em 3by 3 it takes too long and the fish will perish....and then after that week adding the dwarf gourami btw wat live plants wont apple snails munch on?

I see no problem with ghost shrimp and five rummy nose and one snail in your ten gal so long as the tank has cycled. Aplle snails also produce their fair share of poop which is why I would only have one. You could if the tank has cycled put the rummynose in at one time. I do not recommend the dwarf gourami as many of them are prone to disease. The pearl gourami is much hardier and lives longer. Please post your water parameters for ten gal before you put the fish in. Is this the same ten gal. that puffer was in? Is there salt in the tank?

ahh a pearl gourami? well i wanted a gourami with red eyes... >< but okay i like red eyed fish and yes it is...it died cuz my father promised to get me the sand and salt and never did... so it died in his hand and ammonia will always be at 0 because i always test it and the ph is always at 7

If you've got no ammonia source in the tank right now, your biological filter is slowly dying off. I would suggest feeding the tank fish food or ammonia while there isn't anything living in it, or else you'll have to start the cycle all over again.

From everything I've read here on the forum it's not advisable to keep a crayfish with smaller fish as eventually the crayfish will go after the fish, then, goodbye fishies.... :(
