Question Opinions on Tank Mates?

I want to add tank mates for my planted 10 gal and my DT male betta.
What do you guys think about panda corries or rasbora?
If I can, I'd also like to get a ghost shrimp or two. What other shrimp are recommended in case I can't get ghost?

As Red has said before me, Cherry Shrimp should work.

No fish for now

I always advocate for cories. Great little tankmates. Three is the minimum, but 5+ are recommended. I have five in my 10 gal and it seems to be a perfect number.

The only thing I know about rasboras is that they're pretty. :)

The bettas:
Romeo - HM male | Tzekel-Kan - DTHM male | Nemo - CT(?) male | Akio - DTHMPK male | Ares - Delta male | Diablo - SD male | Nameless - VT male | Nameless - DT female
The others:
The Fab Five: Green cory catfish | Maximus: Golden mystery snail | Ichabod & Rosa: African dwarf frogs
Swim in peace, Gaston.
