10 gal tank mate suggestions?

So I am now down to 2 platies and my male betta, Ranger due to various reasons and I am looking for suggestions for one more fish. My females are more than happy with each other and I don't want anymore platies. :) I don't know my water levels except for ammonia and I keep it at 0, so I am looking for a hardy and peaceful fish to keep with them. I have a lot of hiding spaces, but I would like a fish that can coexist.

Pygmy cories snail or shrimp are your best options. Small tetras like neon tetras or glowlight tetras.

^ Because she already has 2 platies. Having 6 neon tetras will make the tank overstocked.

I won't be getting any neons because of the reputation to be nippy and I know that Ranger takes pride in his beautiful flowing fins haha. What about one or two Kuhli Loaches? I like them and I think they would work well in my tank.

^ Kuhli Loaches need to be in groups of at least 6.
