Shrimp will need lots of hiding places and live plants to survive because guppies are very fond of shrimp but not in a good way.

Red Cherry Shrimp (RCS) would lead a very stressful life in a tank with so many predators. And if the guppies didn't eat them they could certainly pick them to death.

Amanos might be okay since they are larger.

Guppies can live anywhere from freshwater to saltwater. They're extremely versatile. Mollies themselves are usually listed as brackish, but many or at least several thrive in freshwater.

I'm experimenting with my ten gallon as well. No betta present. I am finding the long finned white and black tetras to be both beautiful and hardy at present. I did come into a couple of aggressive ones when I stocked to the recommended five...so I'm returning those two to the LPS today. However, the three large females are totally at peace and enjoying swimming together.

May not go with your current setup, but for future reference...
My husband commented that they are almost as pretty as angelfish...

Those are beautiful! I just want to add another kind of fish to the tank. Right now, the guppies are doing fine, just being guppies. Even though there is 8 in there, the tank look so empty. Shrimp may be the way to go, but the LPS owner said I could put 15 guppies in the tank!

Ah yes. Know what you mean. The gal at the pet store who bagged my tetras for me told me all about how she was treating her betta with melafix. The gal who was there today when I returned the two tetras just dumped the bag immediately, no floating, no acclimation. Go figure.
