Having a 10 gallon setup and wanting to put in Cory's (knowing they are shoaling fish. needing 6-10 being the smallest shoal.) There are dwarf Cory that might work out at that number and Mystery snails are always a good choice.(however you might want to hold off on them until you have a good algae (green) growth. Or you could add some lettuce on a hanger to feed them until the tank matures enough to give them more food. Same with the Cory. They need a cycled and mature tank with plenty of food source.
Your plant choices are good I would also Add Anubias to the list. either wait until the roots grow out enough to plant it up to the rhizome or you could supper glue it to drift wood or rock. Another good suggestion is Asian water fern. Low light and grows well.
