Once they get going then you will have to cull (or remove and sell) in any case otherwise they will overpopulate a 10g.
Sort term you could add a small group of Zebra danios or other small dither. They will prob want removing once the multies get going though.

Harlequin rasabora. The fish will live in an aquarium in waters ranging from a pH of 6.0 to 7.8, and hardness ranges from zero to 15°dH. However, whilst for maintenance purposes water chemistry is not critical provided that cleanliness of the aquarium is maintained, for breeding purposes the water chemistry becomes considerably more so. The temperature range of the Harlequin Rasbora is usually cited as 22°C to 27°C (72°F to 81°F) (for example, Walker, 1971, p.101) but the fish is capable of living in temperatures from 21°C to 28°C, and indeed usually breeds at around 28°C (82.4°F).

Not much difference but if you have a pH of 8.6 and hardness of 20 dGH like mine a significant one? :wink:
