Albino cory: good or bad?

I'm going to inherit a Crowntail betta in a few weeks. He's in a 10g with lots of decor, so I was wondering if I could put any other fish in with him such as albino corys. I think they're adorable and they're always at the local fish store. I'd get three of them since I read they do best in groups. What do you think?

Corys are great tankmates for bettas. I would get a group of 5 though. The more there are, the better. Keep in mind that every betta is different and he may decide he doesn't like them. Just have a plan B for the corys. They should be fine, it's just something to be prepared for.

Thanks! I have a spare tank on hand and a 10g divider in case things get rough. :)

Thinking of adding some corys myself to my sorority tank. But can't they not handle aquarium salt? Or am I making that up?

Good luck with them! :) They should get along well.

ohhrats-
I'm not sure, I THINK they are more sensitive, (but I don't know for sure). I wouldn't use AQ salt as a preventative anyway, so no worries.
