10-20 Gallon Sorority Stocking

Well, this is my 1st time stocking a "big" tank so please bare with me. (;
Water Specs~
. Hard Water
. pH of 7.6
. No matter what size, tank will be cycled and heated to 78F

Please tell me any ideas on what to stock with and also tell me if there's anything wrong with the stocking, whether overstocked, understocked, or if any of these creatures I need more of.
Here are my plans on what to stock:
10 Standard- 5 females, 1 Mystery Snail, and 4-5 Cory Catfish or Otos.
20 Long- 8 females, 6 Cory Catfish or Otos, 2 Mystery Snails, and 10 Ghost Shrimp.

What do you all think?? I'm a bit stressed, I never really stocked a tank before or quarantined anything. LOL
(NOTE: All of the fish I'll add will be in QT before added in)

Possibly Albinos or Pandas if there are any in my Petsmarts or Petco. What's the "original" Cory species? It's like this: http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...&lmdn=Pet+Type

yeah, you'll want smaller cories for these tank if you choose them

albinos are usually just bronze cories with the albino gene, and would be too large for a proper shoal in a 10 gallon tank.

Corydoras aeneus (bronze Cory) will work. As will Corydoras sterbai. Pandas and pygmies should not be kept at such high temperatures however.

What do you recommend? And if I choose Otos, are these fine?

I'll search for those. Is the Bronze Cory the Cory that was on my link?

Yes indeed it is. Most all albino cories will be C. aeneus species.

So either Albino or Bronze will work? I think I'll go for Cories then. Do their colors matter on what their group? Like, Albinos have to be with Albinos and Bronze with Bronze?
