I’m not sure what stocking to go with. It’s a cube tank, I will have a 1000 lph canister running on it with drift wood and plenty of live plants.

Im thinking these two but not sure if it’s too much:

5 female betta
3 mystery snail
6 corydoras
6 ember tetra

Or

5 female betta
4 mollies (not sailfin)
3 mystery snail

I really would like to have mollies in there but don’t know if they will be in the bettas faces too much.

In just a 26 gallon you don't have space for other mid dwellers with the betta imo.

Make sure to pick a cory that likes warm water. I would do 8-10 cories.

I also think you would be safer with more bettas to spread out aggression, maybe 8 or so.

I was thinking bronze Cory’s. I recently saw a tank that incorporated mollies and bettas and they’re two of my favourite fish so now I’m inspired but I don’t think 26 gallons is enough
