I have four pandas in a 10 gallon and I think they are absolutely adorable. I love watching them interact with one another. You can check them out in my sig. :) You're going to love your cories!

As far as substrate goes, I have a very small, fine gravel. I've had them in this setup for over a year and haven't had any problems, though I do sometimes regret not getting sand for them to burrow in.

on the subject of cories, they dont breed easily do they? if i got a mix of male and female, i wouldn't be over run with fry?

No, they aren't like livebearers. You may get an accidental spawn, but you'll never be overrun.

They will only breed when they are happy, the only incedant when you might get more fish that you prefer is when you heavily plant the tank, leading to a high survival rate

16 gallon - 11 neon tetras, 6 Pygmy cories, 6 kuhli loaches and 1 male Betta
15 gallon - 1 male Betta, 3 platies, and 5 guppies
6 gallon - 1 male Betta

All planted tanks

In My Opinion a Betta deserves nothing smaller than a 5 gallon tank

that is good to hear. if i have an accidental spawn, the bettas may eat the eggs or fry, right? or might the corys eat the eggs if something like that happened? they wont be in bad conditions but they probably wont be prime spawning conditions.

Yes, the Betta and cories will most likely eat the eggs
Youll need a tank something along the lines of this to get a high survival rate
