Um, if you get corydoras I would really suggest getting the hasborsus, pygmaeus, or hastatus. They're all smaller corydoras that would love a 10g tank, especially a planted one! If you don't get one of those kinds I would suggest only the juliis or pandas for your tank. Those get around 2", they'd be a little cramped but nothing compared to a 3-4" beast corydora! Just a little more information

The best way to help is to be forgiving. People aren't made with a book of ultimate information in their head. We need to inform, not insult; give advice, not lectures; and realize we're all human and we all make mistakes

Cories are great janitors, but they need extra food

Also they do need smoother types of gravel.

I've had bad luck with cories, most of mine don't last more than 6 months. I had cories that spawned one year, but I was totally unprepared.

Also with a betta in residence, you would have to make sure the betta's not helping himself to a portion of the shrimp pellets.

Those varieties of cories are usually not that common @ LFS and the ones I've seen usually start out at $3-$5 each.

  • I think spending that money on essentials like a decent ADJUSTABLE 50-75W heater, & a decent filtration unit with some sort of flow control would be higher on the to do list.
  • Also one of those API Master Water Test kits as well.

Cycle the filter which usually takes several weeks and once completed, then you can consider adding new fish.
