Well then it should work. Just make sure your tank is fully cycled before adding them. Corys are very sensitive to water condtions. Also make sure your fully research their requirements before getting them.

I have 3 of them in my 20 gallon and they are doing great. So active!!!

My 10 gallon took 10 weeks to cycle (fish less cycle) and so far no problems. Master Betta loves it!

So since the ghost shrimp are constantly hiding since my tank is well planted I got some corys like ya'll suggested. I got 4 pepper corrys and Master Betta seams to like them. He has "checked them out" but has not flared or nipped. He is still injurer from those stupid glow tetras (shredded fins, and a scale missing from near his eye) but I've been giving him salt baths and he seams fine.

My betta gets along great with his Cory tank mates. They play chase in the morning and then just chill the rest of the day. The other day the betta was sharing some Algae wafers with the Corys, it was funny as hell seeing him right in the middle of 6 Corys eating away.

Master Betta does the same thing, lol! Today he actually picked up the whole wafer in his mouth and swam away with it. It was so funny to see him carrying that huge wafer!

Either that or leave him in his own tank.

My male betta is in a tank with neons and its fine now.
they were picking on him but the group had a rougue neon. once he was gone everything is harmonious
