So I've been doing a lot of research on Betta's and i finally decided I'm going to get 5 panda cories as well as the one Betta. I bought a 10 gallon, 3 mid-level plastic pants and a small treasure chest hiding place but I was wondering if that was enough "decor".

Yeah, that seems to be fine, you can add more if you like, as long as the tank is not too crowded, and your fish have ample room to swim.

Hope things go well, and welcome to the forum!

Hello and welcome to FishForum. Make sure the plastic plants don't have any sharp edges that the betta can tear his fins on.

I suggest getting a cave-like decor, one or two of them, for the fish to hide in. Betta like their privacy and the cories will like to hide once in awhile, especially if the betta you get is aggressive.

congrats though, cories in my opinion make th ebest tank mates for Betta. Plus they clean up the food that falls to the bottom which is a plus!

Just curious...what type substrate do you plan on using? You probably already know this but cories have sensitive barbels and anything sharp (which certain gravels are) would damage them as they are constantly rooting around the bottom. I prefer to keep cories on a sand bottom. JMHO.

I agree on the cave and that cories are the best ;)
