Rams stay pretty small. I think a pair needs 20 gallons, though. You could get a small school of tetras.

How soft is your water? Maybe a smaller species of gourami such as honey or dwarf might be content to live by itself provided the tank is suitable.

An easy species of apistogramma might be worth looking into if you have water suitable for them. They are absolutely stunning in a biotope style set-up (think dark water and leaf litter) and I am sure you could keep one, or possibly a pair, in a 10 gallon tank. Apistogramma cacatuoides springs to mind.

You know a fish I enjoyed that can be kept alone is a paradise fish not sure about ten gallons being ideal you would have to check. But they are pretty and are very similar to betta's. They even flare and have a labarynth organ. They are just larger. I think they are a type of gourami. Their colors change with thier mood to really rapidly. I saw mine get mad once and turn black around it's head in a matter of a minute and change instantly back.

Dario dario are absolutely tiny and can be pretty shy. In a 10 gallon alone you would be hard pressed to find it. I had one in a 3.5 gallon for a while and I saw it maybe once or twice a day if that. Half the time I thought it had escaped or died.

Plus they really only take live foods a lot of the time so you either have to have cultures going, be buying live foods regularly or be hatching something like BBS on a daily basis. Mine sometimes took frozen but very greatly preferred live foods.

They grow up to 4 inches they were one of the first tropical fish in aquariums. They are decreasing in popularity because you can get more colorful less agressive fish. Sorry for saying Dario Dario. http://www.theaquariumwiki.com/Dario_dario
