Question 10 gallon nano

I am planning a 10 gallon planted tank with java fern, anubia nana, anubia coffelia and echinodorus ozelot. Substrate will be fluval flora, i like it because it is soft and porous. Most of the plants will be anchored to two pieces of driftwood. They light will be one or two clip on lamps with clf. Not to worryied about wattage since the plants are low light except for the echinodurs, but i would like some recommindations on the wattage anyways.

My main question is stocking. I would like 2 speices of finsh in schools that will be comfortable in 10 gallon that is 20x10x12. What do you all recommend?

Thank you all in advance

I think some corys (number depending on type) with say like 5 Chili Raspora or 5 ember tetras would look neat.

Depending on filter and water changes you could do 10 with a small school of other fish. With the bare minimum filtration i dont think so but more filtration the better i say.
