More Corydoras?

-10 gallon
-Topfin Power Filter 10
-Lots of hiding places and live plants

I currently have
1 male betta (very docile, and at the end of his days)
3 African Dwarf Frogs
1 Pepper Cory

Unfortunately the person at the petshop gave me misinformation and I bought the Pepper cory, which gets larger than the pygmy, which is what I should have gotten. I keep hearing that Corydoras need to be in groups, but I'm a tad afraid of overstocking my tank. AqAdvisor told me this:

Note: I'm not sure which corydora I have from their list generated, so I chose the first one. It told me they should be in groups of 4+

Here's what it says after I added 3 more cory:

That brings my stocking to 91%, I feel that's a lot, and there will be a lot of food competition with the bottom feeders (frogs/cory).

The cory sometimes tags along with the frogs, or when my betta is laying at the bottom, my cory sometimes chills next to him and they hang out. Should I assume my single cory has adapted and learned to school with other species? Or should I get more and risk overstocking/food competition?

You could always sell the one Cory you do have.
