What Fish Can I add to a 10 gallon tank?

I already looked through the stickies but they ended up being blank pages once they load. I have a 10 gallon tank in Florida. Right now I'm in Maryland but I hope to move back to Florida one day next year and I hope to clean up my 10 gallon tank, set it up again, cycle and then add some lively fish to it.

While this won't be for a long time I want to know what types of fish are good for a tank that size that are not a Betta Sorority and do not breed unless conditioned to, basically if I get guppies I only want males.

So how many fish and what kinds can I add to a 10 gallon tank for it to be lively and colorful all day long.

If you wanted to try something a bit more unique, you could start your own colony of Neolamprologus Multifasciatus - Or Multie - cichlids. There max size is 1.5" for the males, 1.25" for females. They like a high PH of 8-9, and hard water. They're from Lake Tanganyika, and are in the shell-dweller group. I used crushed aragonite sand to buffer my PH, tossed a few shells in with fake plants, and added 4 Multies, within a month or so I had 25 fry, and every few weeks another batch of fry. They care for there young and won't eat the fry, and you can keep them until there about .5 - .75" and bring them in to your LFS for trade. My LFS sells them for 15$, and gives 3$ on trade. Helps pay for the hobby.
Otherwise you could get a small group of pygmy cories (4 most likely for the tank size) and a few tetras of your choosing.
