Red face Best type of cories for betta tank?

I've got a 14 gallon tank that my betta Finny (General Finn Snipes... don't ask.) resides in, he used to have 6 neon tetras buddies but they all died off unfortunetly :/ So now he has the whole tank to himself, and I'd really like to add in some cories.
What kind would be best? I hear that some get too large, so thats why I'm asking :)
Also, any good sites to buy cories online? I have no access to a pet stores. Aquabid I'm sure is good, but I dont have any experience with that site ;D

I've read that Panda Corie's are good. Petco sells them online. Here's a link.

Yeah, they are a bit pricey. You could go with the Albino cories. They're like 1/2 the price. lol

I heard somewhere that albino cories can get pretty big, so I'm not sure if they're okay... I'll look it up ^^

For a 14 gal You can go with any type of cory your want. It's your preference. If you get a smaller type of cory you can get more. If you get a bigger type, you have to get less (but no less than 3). I have previously owned bronze and albinos. My personal favorite are Julii's. Mine are only about 1.5 inches. I love their cream colored skin and stripes. Here is a pic of one of mine.

Albino's get fairly decent sized, but you could keep 4 or so in a 14 gallon.

I only have 1 betta left, but he's a cool blue marble!
