15g TALL would I believe but my 15g long fits on a 20g stand. 6 girls will be fine in a 10g tank.

Yup, I think a 15g long (which is what I have) has the footprint of a 20g tank, so fits on a 20g stand and fits a 20g hood, but I would measure first before trying.

Not in a sorority. Snails can produce a lot of waste as well, so it may not be a good idea to add them in, especially if you want shrimp, too. I'd just go with the females first and let the tank settle before trying shrimp or snails.

You have 2 10 gallons? For your second one if you put one boy, you'd have a lot more options for other fish.

1 nerite would be fine, since they can't reproduce on you. They are also rather attractive, I find.
Also, don't add your shrimp in until your tank is fully cycled, they tend to be sensitive little buggers.

6 girls in a 10 gallon is already a lot of fish. It may not sound like it, but they'll be very active and enjoy the extra space.

There really isn't that much option for a 10gal sorority.
