Okay, you're not going to like hearing this, but I'm going to say it anyways:
1) A 10 gallon is too small for corys. They should be kept in groups of 4 or more. Pygmy corys which grow to 1.25", and are the only corys that could go in that tank without killing your bioload.
2) I have a super agressive female betta who likes to be alone. So I keep her that way. Learned the hard way... her last victim was a Bronze cory!
Leave Drax alone, in his tank, the way it is. That's the way HE wants it.
Save up for a larger community tank.
Get your mom a small tank set up and put some shrimp in it for her. Just shrimp. You'll make her day! :)
