-Your tetras will hunt down shrimplets.
-A 10g is very hard to find lighting for. You could try the Current USA Satellite/Orbit fixtures though, if you want a high/super-high light tank, but the 2x40W is overkilll.
-DIY CO2 will work nicely on a 10g. I had a pressurized system, however, because of the reduced maintenance and increased stability.
-The "best" substrate, in my opinion, is ADA AquaSoil. But it just depends on what you want to grow.
-The "best" fertilizers are dry ones you can get from Greg Watson's old company or Rex Grigg...or your local nursery (in bulk). You can even mix them yourself for easy-to-dose solutions.
