I would say both are the same, female rasboras are just as big as black neons :) Male rasboras are skinny lol Either way, these two are the most calm of my tank :)

That is great to hear :)

Btw, will the tank setup be okay for rasboras/black neons?

80 degrees, baffled filter (very little current).

How do you guys feed your community tanks? As in, how do you get all your fish fed?

With my cories and only one female betta, I feed her when I feed the rest of the bettas and around 6ish PM, I drop the cories' sinking food in so that it is soft enough for them to eat by the time they get moving around - they are diurnal/nocturnal so they are most active early in the morning and around evening through night. With my guppies, who are currently in QT, I sprinkle a few flakes on top and eventually they notice. Still perfecting how to feed them, I'll let you know if I come up with a better method.

Your tank sounds good. You could even drop down one or two degrees in temp if you needed to for the other fish. They'll be happy fish.

Well I visited a few pet stores today and none of them have shrimp or black neons :( I asked when they would get some new shrimp and neons; the employees had no idea.

So again, my plan needs changing a bit. I plan on getting 5-6 Rasboras, 1 male Betta and I'm thinking about 1 Panda Cory?

Again its a 15G tank, so I'm worried I might be pushing it. Will 1 Panda Cory be fine or do they prefer to be in groups? Also is 5-6 Rasboras enough to be a school?

Panda cories like to be in groups, so with 5-6 rasboras and 1 betta, you could easily have 3-4 pandas. And you should be fine, I don't think you're pushing it yet. All the fish you've chosen have pretty small bioloads and aren't aggressive or territorial (except the betta and usually only with another betta).
