Pygmy cories are the smallest variety, and are the most practical for stocking in smaller tanks.

I have seen some Jullii cories at my local LFS, Will they be okay in my tank with a Betta once its cycled?

The guy there said a school of 6/7 was recommended though, He was pretty insistent that it wouldn't over-stock my tank.

Any advice?

Also he told me instead of feeding a Betta Frozen bloodworm that was defrosted, to Try using blood worm pellets?

Anybody use bloodworm pellets and are they recomended?

In regards to the cory's, I'd say 4 minimum. I had four, they were active and playful... but once I added four more and had a total of eight, they became even more active and all of them explore the tank more confidently. I have four shwartzi and four skunks.

I'm a huge fan of cory's and ended up giving mine their own tank. I'd say more is better with them. They really are a shoaling species and do best with numbers. I'd also encourage to the get least 4 of the same species. Mine hang out together, but they sometimes hang out in their own species group.
