What fish to add?

    I will be transfering my 5 neon tetras, 2 algae eating shrimp, and 1 ivory snail from my 5 gallon to my new 10 gallon once its cycled. What other fish should I add? I have a few options I think could work.

    1.) another school of 5-6 of glowlights or black neons.
    2.) 4-6 panda corys.
    3.) 1 threadfin rainbow and 1 neon blue dwarf rainbow or just one of either.
    4.) 6-7 more neon tetras.
    5.) 2-3 more neons and a pearl gourami or a honey gourami.

    Tell me what you think. Any other suggestion are certainly welcome. :D

    You won't have a whole lot of room left with your current fish.

    1) might work, but I'd only go with 3 - 4 black neons or 2 - 3 glowlights.
    2) I think that would overload your tank.
    3) I believe rainbows are social fish but a single dwarf gourami would work.
    4) I would only go for 3 - 4 more neons.
    5) This would overload your tank.
