Need Help Planning Stocking a New 10 Gallon

So I'm trying to come up with a plan. I'm picking up 2 danios today to start off the tank for the next 4-6 weeks. So here is my plan so far:

5 female bettas
2 danios
2 albino cory (after 6 months)

I would like to add a few make guppies. How many could I add? What ideas do you have? Thanks!

You could do that with a 20g... but in a 10g that is too over stocked. I personally wouldn't go over 5 female bettas and two danios.

The title says 10, and I thought you got the 10 gal at the petsmart sale...?
That would be too much for a 10 gal for sure, and cories like to shoal, so they should be in groups of at least 3.

I was thinking of getting 2 frogs to go with Master Betta, but would also like to get some fish for him too. He's really social, I put a mirror in his tank and he didnt even flare. He just kept looking at it, lol.

You could put 2 ADF's with Master Betta in the 10 gallon and put 6 females and 6 cories in the 20 gallon. I don't think 12 fish would be overstocking a 20 gallon but someone else will have to say for sure.

I really dont want to have anymore then 2 cories, I want to add 2 glass shrimp too. But I would really like to add something more then just bettas to the 20. Maybe guppies and/or danios.
