Any recommendations for a 10 gallon fish tank?

Lots of plants and grasses with cherry or crystal red shrimp.

I wouldn't recommend fish for anything smaller than a 20 G tank.

Sure, a 20G would be better but there are tons of fish that will do just fine in a 10G

A single Betta, scarlet badis, sparkling gouramis, chili rasboras, celestial pearl danios, rosy loaches, etc etc

Shrimp are fun too. Live plants are a great addition too

With a 10 gallon, you can have some small fish. Just make sure you do not over crowd it.

Shrimps are good option but do not mix fish and shrimp in such small tank.

there are tall 20 gallon tanks with the same base area as a 10 gallon tank. In either 10 gallon or 20gallon tank I wouldn't want to keep fish which grow to be longer than 2 ".

all the work and care you have to do is the same as a 30-40 gallon tank . Some might argue the work load actually lessens as the system tends to be more stable.

True that.. The smaller the tank the more difficult it can be to maintain a healthy environment. To a point it's almost the exact opposite of what you would think. A 40 gal tank is probably the optimal "starter" size.
