10 Gallon Stocking Ideas?

Hey guys!

I need help on ideas for stocking my 10 gallon. I currently have 1 betta in their. My ideas so far are:

5 Cardinal Tetras
1 Cory Catfish
A few ghost shrimp (How many?)

Other ideas?

I'm not a fan of tetras other than ember tetras in a ten gallon due to their size and activity levels, though it is still a possibility. However, you need to choose between tetras and cories. Cories are schooling fish too and need a minimum group size of four, with more being better. A ten gallon can't support both schools.

What is your water like? Soft or hard? What is the pH?
