More Corydoras?

-10 gallon
-Topfin Power Filter 10
-Lots of hiding places and live plants

I currently have
1 male betta (very docile, and at the end of his days)
3 African Dwarf Frogs
1 Pepper Cory

Unfortunately the person at the petshop gave me misinformation and I bought the Pepper cory, which gets larger than the pygmy, which is what I should have gotten. I keep hearing that Corydoras need to be in groups, but I'm a tad afraid of overstocking my tank. AqAdvisor told me this:

Note: I'm not sure which corydora I have from their list generated, so I chose the first one. It told me they should be in groups of 4+

Here's what it says after I added 3 more cory:

That brings my stocking to 91%, I feel that's a lot, and there will be a lot of food competition with the bottom feeders (frogs/cory).

The cory sometimes tags along with the frogs, or when my betta is laying at the bottom, my cory sometimes chills next to him and they hang out. Should I assume my single cory has adapted and learned to school with other species? Or should I get more and risk overstocking/food competition?

You could always sell the one Cory you do have.

America (f, HM), Spirit (m, DBLT), Rescue (f, VT), Missile (m, HM), Purnurple (m, HMPK), Dragon (m, VT), platies, mollies, sorority tank of 21 females, AND lots of guppies.
