there are fish like platies, mollies, cory cats, etc who aren't as crazy active, but still school and look pretty.

Most Mollies will get too big for a 10 gallon though.

Cories usually get along pretty well with bettas. You could put four or five regular cories or six+ pygmy/dwarf cories. Platys are also usually good, but they might need something larger than a 10 gallon, I'm not sure.
