Stcoking for shallow 10 gallon.

A lid could help a ton with jumpers in a shallow tank. I like to get a green house panel from Home Depot. They come in 24x48 inch panels. It cuts easily, and light passes right through so there isn’t any issue with it blocking “good” light out. I keep a couple panels in the basement for when I need them. Make sure to share some pics when it’s all set up.

Neolamprologus Multifasciatus and no lids necessary. You can incorporate larger shells to have plants grow up and out. Just an idea. 

One will soon have issues with overpopulation and aggression in such a small tank with multies.

 

I have similar but higher for my group of pseudomugil luminatus, they are great but also jumpers. Clown killifish, same story, look awesome, utilize mostly the top but some lower parts of the tank too

I have seen all the species you listed jump. 
 

Celestial pearl danio (Danio margaritatus) or Danio erythromicron (Emerald dwarf danio.  Both are lower level dwellers. I’ve never had any of mine jump. They are small and would enjoy your shallow no lid 10 g. 
Two of my favorite fish to watch. Can also be kept without a heater if you room does not fall below 70

I used the polycarbonate greenhouse panels mentioned above. I was able to cut them to size and add cutouts for wires and filters and whatnot using just a box cutter (though it did use up a whole blade).

I use a jigsaw with a metal-cutting blade. Works great, highly customizable for the tank needs (filters, cords, airlines etc).

If you do end up having a lid, then you could go with killifish. 

That tank would be great for pretty much any common variety. You could have a school of clown killis with some shrimp on bottom. You could go with a pair or small group of Aphyosemion Australe, Aphyosemion striatum, or Fundulopanchax Gardneri.
