You suggested Pygmy corys. How many do you think would work? And are dwarf corys small enough too( I like their look a bit better)?

Do you think the betta, 5, neons, and a few corys would be okay? According to AqAdvisor the Betta and 5 neons would only have the tank at 62% capacity. (I am religious about water changes if that matters and it will have lots of plants.)

He isn't too aggressive I dont think. He doesn't flare often even at hsi reflection and he never minded the ghost shrimp untill they started going in his little Betta Log and then he kinda decided they needed to go. I have had him with Neons temporarily in the past and he would chase them just a tiny bit but never do much else. He has a lot of finnage so he couldnt really catch them. If anything were to go wrong tho I do have a quarintine tank he could go in until I got everything else fixed.



Also thank you all for the help and opiniosn I really appreciate it.

I think dwarf and pygmy are the same. I may be wrong though.

AqAdvisor is sometimes the best tool in the business, other times it's utter junk. This time, I think it's right. Don't rely on it every single time though. And yes, adding a few cories would be fine.
