Add more or stick with what I've got?

So Petsmart has cory catfish on sale for $1 right now and I snagged 5 albino and 5 pepper for my 125 gallon. Love these guys. So what I want to know is would it be ok to add some to my 20 gallon sorority tank with 9 females and a snail? Or should I just stick with what I have in there?

That sounds like it would be way overstocked. You could throw in some more fish to the 125, considering it isn't already stocked, but I wouldn't add to the 20 gal.

Didn't think so lol. The 125 gallon doesn't have a lot in it but I think I'll just stick with my 10 Cory's for now

I have to disagree - you could easily get away with a school of 6 cories in a 20 gallon with 9 females and a snail. Bettas don't have a large bioload (one reason they do so well in smaller tanks), so you are not even close to capacity yet.

Maybe not the emeralds - they get bigger than the other species. I'd stick to bronze or smaller.

Albinos are the same species as bronze, so they are fine. :) Peppered are also fine. I love peppered!
