2.4 Gallon with a Betta and 3 Corys

Is it possible that I could put 3 corys in a 2.4 gallon- 11 litre tank with a betta? Or is this too small?

Way way way too small...

To keep cories and a betta, you'd need at least a 10g tank.

according to www.aqadvisor.com yes you are, and this is with a 2.5 gallon tank:

Note: Betta [Male] may jump - lids are recommended.
Warning: Corydoras C079 is not recommended for your tank - it may eventually outgrow your tank space, potentially reaching up to 2.2 inches.
Warning: At least 4 x Corydoras C079 are recommended in a group.

Recommended water change schedule: 65% per week. (You might want to split this water change schedule to two separate 40% per week)
Your aquarium stocking level is 167%.
Your tank is overstocked. Unless you are an experienced aquarist who can meet the maintenance/biological needs of this aquarium, lower stocking levels are recommended.

Way too small, not to mention 3 cory's isn't enough. They're schooling fish, and do best with a group of 6. As mentioned above, a minimum of a 10 gallon would be required.

I thought it was too small but thought I would ask just encase =)

I'm slightly confused by the numbers they should be in though, a lot of people say they should be kept in numbers of 3-6 while others say they must be in a school of 6.

I know, I have OCD with my fish tanks though especially as the little one doesnt have a filter so I'll be constantly cleaning it even in my dreams no doubt lol. I just wanted to know if it was too small for an apple snail lol.
