Yeeeah, pretty much. My guess is the cories they'll have will be bronze/albino cories or peppered cories. Those are the most popular and common.

Edit: Be aware you may run into the same feeding problem I did when I tried to keep my cories in my sorority.

If they have those then I'm not so worried, I'm going to save the images of all the popular cories in my brain to figure out what they have XD
Apart from bloodworms I don't think and I hope I wont have the same problem because my girls will eat nothing, except bloodworms.. Wont even look at a pellet XD

If you get cories you can count yourself lucky your girls are so fussy. I'm still not sure Winnie has shrunk completely from that disasterous night. Actually they're all a little fat so they're being fasted today. Very unhappy girls.

They're all sulking at the back of the tank. Usually they're up front and always swarming around where I can see them. They're also swimming in slo mo as if to say, "Soo hungry . . . can't swim . . ." Not buying that act, girls, sorry.

I haven't dared to open the tank lid, even the feeding lid today, for fear Goldi will threaten the same. They might just jump out and try to eat me!

Edit: Haha, usually when I look over they're just all over the place, usually swimming into each other at the front of the tank. Today on fasting day? The tank looks empty. I have to watch for a moment to see one of them skulking in the plants.

I think I'd cave heheh! I don't fast any of my bettas, never need to, maybe once a day instead of twice... Its weird, when feel hungry and haven't fed them I imagine how hungry their little tummies must be XD I'm a softie .__.

My problem is I think I overfed them the other night in my effort to make sure everyone had enough to eat. I wish they'd line up nicely and wait. Haha, like that's ever going to happen.

If you get guppies, you may end up with a few nipped tails on them but as long as you provide lots of plants, they should be able to hide. Same thing with danios, as long as they can hide. Platies and cories will be fine because they're bigger. Bronze cories get about 3 inches, way big enough to handle even Chunkers and Awesome Sauce. If you get danios, you might actually want to get 7 (plus the one you already have) for a school of 8. It's not adding that much more to the bioload and the more there are in a school, the happier the danios will be.

And actually, guppies handle salt just fine. It's the cory cats that can't handle salt at all.
