If you add mollies along with the cories and the shrimp it'd be way over stocked.

I believe these are more of opinions than fact not only yours, but my comments as well.

I speak from opinion and experience of what has worked for me. As others have said, some things that work for others, might not work for the OP.

I went back to the fish store, and bought the other 2 that they had. When I asked they told me it was a Bronze Cory. And looking at the list someone posted earlier, it is definitely a Bronze.

I have to agree with the others, Bettalover - mollies do have a very large bioload, and since they get so big I wouldn't recommend them for less than a 20 gallon. If the OP wanted livebearers, platys would be a better option for a 10 gallon, being smaller with a lesser bioload. Although the mollies are mid-swimmers, it's not just about physical room, after all. :)

However, this point is somewhat moot, as we are all agreed that boosting that cory school is the most important thing. :) Can you post a picture of your cory, Mankey? We may be able to figure out exactly what it is from that. :)

Bronze makes sense.. They are probably the most common species out there.

@bumbalurina: yes, but I was just giving an example of a livebearer.

@Mankey: So you have three bronze corys now..correct?

Correct. 3 Corys, 1 Betta (of course), and 6 ghost shrimp.

I should also mention that at the fish store I didn't see the corys schooling, but now that they're all in my tank they are actually sticking together.

It's because they are in a new environment and don't see any other ways of protection but with their own kind. In time, you'll see them part from each other occasionally andenjoy the tank fully.

Is there any way you can get pictures up? I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd love to see them!

Yes, I will try to get pictures tomorrow. I need to take the pictures with sunlight. My room's light isn't too great and the tank itself doesn't have a light. I should probably also warn that my tank is extremely plain, but I do plan on getting some more fake plants and possibly a cave soon.

Right now the only decorations in there are one fake plant and one little pillar.

That's great! Corys enjoy having a cave for the idea of protection. As well as the shrimp.
