Not everyone can just -upgrade- to a 10g .___.
What kind of 5g tank is it? Topfin? Eclipse hex?
With an 5g eclipse hex you can have 3 panda cory's and a betta and you'd only be pushing 15-20% overstocked, (which also means more work for you during your weekly cleanin) but I've also been told bottom dwellers don't count toward your actual stock but thats probably for larger tanks. If you are more woried about the betta being stressed, he'll probably be fine. Adding 2 more cory's is probably better than having one solo.
