i think rasboras are known more commonly as scissortails?? the only scissortails i had heard of were rasbora caudimaculata though and theyre not small, about 6" as far as i know so no use for a 10g tank. looking at the photos you have there its a different fish, but similar, to the one i know. just check that they do stay small before you go getting shoals of them.

if youre looking for little fish that will look good in a shaol, cardinals, neons or black neon tetras maybe? all pretty little fish and easy to get a hold of as theyre quite popular.

hope this helps anyway

after posting that i had a wee look and yes my mistake, scissortails are only one type of rasbora rather than rasboras being a type of scissortail which is what i initially thought, sorry about that. im new to this and this is all very confusing to me. im going to stick to my cories - at least i know what they are lol came across a harlequin/red rasbora. they grow only to 2" apparently which would be much better for your size of tank and are quite nice - some have a nice red colour, but still not the fish in the picture. quite easy to sex as well which is good if you do or don't want to breed them either way.

2.5cm is really very tiny. if you want fish that size then neon tetras would probably be your best bet. cardinals are a bit more colourful but a wee bit bigger. still pretty small though. also a small group of albino cories or something would be really nice imo. they stay pretty small as well and will help clean up any waste in your tank, though i am a bit biased towards them as they are my favourite fish
