I was wondering if a pair or three jhonny darters or least darters(I don't remember the species) along with 4/5 least darters would fit in a ten gallon? Anyone recommend a filter? It would aslo help me if some native low-light plants were recommend, as I want it to be as natural as possible! Would the least killis work or should I do top minnows or anyone recommend any other cool smaller fish that would work. Last thing I know this probably wont work, but is it possible to house a sculling with no other fish in a 10 gallon?

I had three rainbow darters and a blacknose dace and a couple of topminnows in a ten gallon once... it was a very nice tank.

I had 2 banded darters, 2 rusty crayfish and several common shiners in a 10 gallon tank and it looked nice. However, minnows are schoolers and need more room.

If you meant, sculpin, yes, you could do one to maybe three in a 10 Gallon.  Need good aeration and live longer in cooler water.  For low light native plants, maybe aquatic moss?  Adding plants will definitely help in a small tank.  If you can't find native plants, any low light plant is better than none.
