I used to keep 3 Cories and learned it was bad. I got rid of some fish and got 2 more Cories.

every one has plenty of room in my tank. I have a filter designed for a larger tank and a U.V steralizer to make sure every one is happy.

I have 1 Male Betta, 4 Harlequin Rosboras, 5 Glass Cat Fish (which do not stick to the bottom as the name Catfish implies lol) and 2 Yo-Yo Loaches. The tank is a 10 gallon tall octagon.

As Aquarist we should always avoid overstocking.

Sorry but adding an extra large filter doesn't make up for the tank size. The 10 gallon is just too small even for a school of only glass catfish, which can get up to 6 inches in length, so add the others and you're way over.. The Glass are also REALLY super sensitive fish and get sick at a pin's drop so it's important not to overstock them. Sorry. Not meaning to make you upset, but hoping you'll relook at your tank.

Really? Huh, they seem fine to me its been a couple months with no problems. I was unaware glass get 6 inches i thought only half that O.o. As soon as i start to see a problem I probably will re-home them and go for a glass species that doesnt get so large.
