I am looking to buy peppered cory cats at my local pet store for my 10 gallon tank and i was wondering how many i should get and how i can tell the gender because i dont want to have babies. Also, what type of food should i get and good brands would be nice.

Peppered cories are great! I would get at least 4, this makes them much more active and bold. They like algea wafers, bloodworms, and catfish pellets. Don't worry about breeding, they (and the betta!) will eat the eggs! Brands of food don't matter much, most catfish foods and algea wafers will do. Make sure you have sand or very rounded gravel. Their whiskers can get easily cut off!

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