Pygmy Cories don't show themselves that much unless they feel safe (dim lighting) and are in a shoal. The bigger the number the safer they feel, they can live in a 10g fine, you could plop 10 of them in. They'll hide for a few days but after awhile they'll show themselves, your Betta will stop trying to chase them after he finds them to be fast swimmers.

As for the 5g you could do 6 but that's pushing it, maybe you could have a shrimp farm in there? I always wanted one.

I like shrimp. My issue is that all my bettas like shrimp, too. I'll need to purchase quite a few and hope they're intelligent enough to use cover.

As opposed to you know. Swimming in circles until they get caught. -___-;

Mine generally survive pretty well in the betta tanks - when they are worried about the betta, they stay under cover. They don't tend to emerge until they are confident they won't get eaten. When I first moved some of my RCS to my 5 gallon with my veiltail male, they were used to being in the open, but they realised Apollo was curious and hid themselves away. Now he's got over the fascination and they are out and about again. :)

Shrimp, that is, not pygmy cories. I definitely wouldn't do the pygmies in less than a 10 gal. :)

I had four the other day when I bought the,m (at $3 each). Now only my jumbo ghost shrimp remain.. they're just too big for my fish to eat. I'll stick to ghosts I think as they'r pretty cheap xD
