hi, i am getting a 10 gal for my bday, and i was wondering if this would be a good stocking plan:

5 ember or neon tetras,
3 guppies and 3 miniature platys. and maybe(what the pet store called)a Rafael Cat Fish, that doesn't grow bigger then 2 inches, or at least that's what the pet store says, what do you think?

Definitely choose the embers over the neons. Embers are fine for a 10 gallon but neons like bigger spaces - 15 gallon minimum. The panda cories are too large for your 10 gallon also, but you can get some EXTREMELY cute pygmy cories. Look into them. The shop lied to you about the size of the Raphael. Or they are simply ignorant.

You could do:
3 x mimi platys
5 x embers
5 x pygmy cories
or
3 x male guppies
5 x pygmy cories

Both of these options are pretty heavily stocked but with a good filter and maintenance schedule it should be fine.
Remember to cycle before adding them. :) Happy birthday for whenever it is. :)
