Hm... if you got just average cories like albino cories or some other kind, it would be 3 of them in the tank, but if you got Pygmy Cories (they're really tiny) you could get 4-5 of them. There are many kinds of cories, so just see what your LFS has. ^^

1 Male ~ 5 Females
3 Bronze Cories
1 Hamster
Soon, 1 cornsnake!

Your stocking suggestions are perfectly fine! As long as you are willing and PROMISE to keep up on water changes. That is basically what determines what you can/cannot stock with.

I would do:

1 female betta
2 platys
6 pygmy corries

This would be the best for the fish you are looking at. Pygmy corries are your best bet. Panda's are way too sensitive with new tanks, but the pygmy should be fine as long as enough food gets to the bottom. The betta and the platys will be fine, possibly a bit of fin nipping, in which case you'd have to take out the betta, or take out the platys. Having an understocked shoal of the corries is much more concerning than an extra three, because they will be much more active and healthy. (which leads to more cleaning as a small bonus[: )

Just keep up with water changes and if you can add live plants! Plants like hornwort will suck up all the ammonia they can get. Another suggestion is java fern. Both are easy to care for and pretty cheap. If you get the corries, your going to want floating live plants anyways to shade the tank, because corries are sensitive to light and won't thrive if they aren't covered.

You can check out my 10 gallon on the side, as an example.
