Smile Glass shrimp or Albino Cory?

Iím trying to decide between the two for my 10 gallon which will be holding a small male betta and a few neon and black tetras. What would clean the tank better?
Advantages and disadvantages?

I would say the shrimp since it seems like your tank is going to be pretty full. Cories likes to be in shoals, and once you add those to the rest you are running into an over stocked tank. I think Cories are a little bit more compatible with Bettas though. I've read of shrimp eating the fins on the Betta, and of bettas eating shrimp!
Good luck with whatever you choose, and as always, post pics!

I have 6 cory cats in my community tank.
2 Albino
2 Peppered
2 Green/tan

LOVE them, very fun to watch, and they are just crazy.

HOWEVER, many people think they are tank cleaners... really they just eat extra food from the other fish from teh gravel, and you still hafta feed them tablets.

If you want 1, get 2 minimum. My 2 ablino's stay together, and my other 4 stick together.
