Question Question about cories?

I was wondering, if I were to get 1 cory, will that cory nip on my betta's fins? Or should I buy two cories?

Hey there Link,
First of all, what size tank do you have?
Cories like to live in groups of 5, one or two of them would be pretty lonely.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

That not big enough for cories. Maybe ghost shrimp, mystery or zebra nerite snail or an ADF.
