Need some suggestions for tank mates :)

Hey guys, I have a 10 gallon *eek tiny* planted tank with a light coloured sand & very fine gravel substrate. I've got six itsy bitsy ghost shrimp in there now, and two flame red dwarf gouramis, both at about 1.75" in length now. I absolutely love the way they look when swimming around the tank, beautiful. I've got my tank at 26c/79f and am looking to add some other guys to the tank that will complement the look. I was thinking something along the lines of a school of x-ray tetra or some glo-lights? What do you think would look good together. Overall I want to have a harmonious theme to the tank, so no insanely darty zebra danios, for example. Also what are your thoughts on adding some more dwarfs?

The tank still needs about two or three months to grow in how I want and start to look decent, but here's a shot or two for an idea (You can't see any any ghosts because they're itsy bitsy and I didn't focus on any);

Pretty little tank and fish you have there. I haven't kept gouramis for years. I'd forgotten how colorful they can be. I think your tank could use some glosso in the center/left. I've always liked the plant for nano projects, and I think it would add vibrant contrast to your substrate and fish selection. Look forward to a growth update later on

Hrm, that is a mighty sexy little plant. I'll have to see where I can get some locally.

Also - I ended up adding some "flame tetras". Just have to wait and see how the tank looks when it grows in a bit now.
