Arrow Question about using a divider?

I plan on getting a 10 gallon tank set up late December/early January. I want to put a splitter and put in either another male Betta or a female Betta, if I breed my current male. The problem is, I also want albino corycats. Is there any type of setup I can hav ewith 2 Bettas and some Corycats?

IMO I would pick one or the other. Either 2 male bettas or 1 male betta and corycats. It's all what you would want more.
I know some people feel cory's do fine in 5 gallons, but you need a good group of them and 5 gallons of surface area for them just doesn't seem to be enough. They stick the bottom unlike a betta who goes a little bit of everywhere.
It's not recommended to have one male and one female in a divided tank as they release hormones each other can sense and stress them out. Also know that sometimes two males will not accept the divider and constantly flare and stress their selves out and you might have to remove one of the males to a separate tank. Along those lines some Betta's do not get along with any living creature from snails to corycat's. So be prepared again to have to remove either the cory's or betta from the tank if he were to go after them.
I have a betta who kills anything that moves and I tried him in a divided tank and he stressed himself out pretty bad so I had to switch everyone around until they all seemed content.

Thanks! I think I'll go without the divider and if I really want another male or female after I get the tank I'll keep the new one (or old one!) in my current
2.5 or 3 gallon (don't know which) tank.
