I wanted MTS so bad but since they breed like guppies, I'd have a problem. ): Their bioload is tiny sort of

I wonder if my LFS will take them for free

All snail bio-load are big!! Shrimp are small, however the bigger the shrimp the bigger the bio-load.

For a 10 gallon with a Betta and 8-10 schoolers, I really don't think you should get anymore fish. Your tetra's will stay more towards the bottom where Cory's would be so you don't want too many fish on the same level. It starts to overcrowd. Besides, Cory's add more to the bio-load and they sure do poop a lot! Same with any and all algae eaters, all of them poop the most out of all the smaller freshwater fish. So I'd just stick to what you got and that should be good

Okay. My dad wanted a "natural environment" for the tank. I'll just say there's too many fish

NVM "Warning: Betta [Male] is not recommended to be with Cherry Shrimp - further research is highly recommended."

you can have 20 cherry shrimps if you want.. but then need a place to hide.. like moss etc... somewhere you betta cant reach. otherwise they'll just make a tasty snack!
