10 gallons is fine- in fact, you can have your betta in it, and add in 2 more cories to make them all happy :)

You do what you can do for them- even if it's waiting to get the 10 gallon, just as long as you keep doing the water changes it should be fine for a while.
Luckily a 10 gallon isn't all that large, so it wouldn't be too much bigger then the one you have, foot print wise.

I looked on the Walmart site but didn't see the $30 one.. just a 5 gal for $32. Even that would be better if you can get away with a 5 gallon :)

Do you think that a soriority can fit in a 10 gallon tank?
Ive tried to look around on here for a soriority in a 10 g tank and they suggest 5 bettas. If you have a soriority how many would you suggest in a 10?

A sorority can fit in a 10 gallon (five females, heavily planted). But cories and a sorority wouldn't fit in a 10 gallon tank.
Either a male with min. 3 cories with max about 5 or 5 females.

Eaglescout at Petco they have a sale that is a 10g tank kit by Aqueon that is $30. Just order a 50w heater for a 10g tank on amazon. As at Petco it is $40 for a Aqueon heater and $20 on amazon. I wouldn't start a sorority maybe another male or female and keep the other male in the 2.5 or upgrade him into the 10 and put the new one in the 2.5

Kfryman. I tried to find it on petcos website and the only 10 gallon tank that i could find was 140 bucks..... as to the sorority i currently have two tanks that house my two male bettas. I have one in the 2.5 with two corys (which is why i am looking into the bigger tank, and I have one all by itself in a 1 gallon tank with a mystery snail. i kinda want to change something up a little with the 10 gallon tank and get away from the males....

As for the 10 gallon, you can divide it 3 ways and have the two males and a female but that wont help the corys since the tank would be divided.

I think that would be too much bioload for a 10 gallon tank.

No, females and cories would not work in a 10 gallon. I think you'd need like a 20 gallon for that many fish.
