Thanks for the info!

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?

Thank you for the input! Cycling is pretty done, I haven't had ammonia or nitrite in almost a week. The crypts are growing back after the initial melt off too. I added a couple horned nerite snails. I thought about some chili rasboras but I think the little girl would be a little too aggressive. Here's an updated picture. I added a sword as well.

Looking great!! She looks so little in all that space. One of my favorite plants right now is broad-leaf ludwigia. It's beautufiul and so easy.

I think she's almost full grown too it's funny seeing a single fish in a tank this big. She likes exploring her territory though haha.
I like how this one is growing in I've been thinking of getting a red-ish stem plant for the other spot in the back! I'll look at those! The red plant in there now is AR "cardinalis" and I swear by it, it's my favorite.

Awesome!! What sort of rasboras are those? Chili or exclamation point? Super cute! When I first got mine they were small and skinny like that but they'll fatten up and grow like weeds in a few days. How Kat taking to them?
