Location: I fell out of the portal into Wonderland, crossed the Bifrost from Asgard and landed here, USA.
My total stocking in my ten gallon is ten dwarf rasboras (I have the exclamation point ones and they're delightful) , 3 black diamond corys, five pygmys, and three hasbarous along with my betta and one guppy. It seems like a lot but it's worked out great with a lot of attention, increased filtration and a ton of plants along with the fact the fact that my betta is old and lazy, as is the guppy. Really stocking is relative to space, bioload how much maintenance you have time for and fish personality Russel and maclyri said. Stocking calculators like Aquaadvisor are amazing for a estimate, but are still limited.
Bottom line, if you're only going to have a betta and corydoras, I wouldn't worry to much about having 12 or so corydoras.
How is cycling going?
