Care sheet says..Minimum tank size for this fish is 25 gallons! Sorry, it just gets too big! Plus as an adult it will even eat small fish!

They will get along fine for a while. But as they grow and become adults they will get nasty and kill your betta & cories.

No. But the horror stories are all over the net. Just dont do it. The cories themselves will keep the sand clean enough. Why waste money and risk it? The fish you are looking at is a color variation of the chinese algae eater.

Notice that it says:
Potential Threat: Gets very aggressive as it grows larger

Any kind of snail will work. As For other fish
-cories
- tetras*
- Otos
- harlequin rasboras
- danios
- cherry barbs
- platies*
- mollies*
- wild type guppies

That's all I can think of. *=maybe. How many cores do you have in the 10 gal? You don't want to overstock the tank. In my 10 gal I had 3 cories and a betta and it wAs pretty much (or nearly) fully stocked.
