This is strictly a hypothetical question, so please don't murder me. I understand their are many different opinions on stocking, and I would like to here some of them. So in a 10 gallon would you be able to do this?
3 female Betta splendens (Siamese fighting fish) + 6 small corydoras (Corydoras pygmaeus or C. hastatus) + 2 bridgesii snails
in my opinion I don't think the bettas would work and it's over stocked but it still sounds like and awesome combination if it is viable.
Thank you in advance for the replies.

3 bettas will not work in a 10 gallon unless you want a bloodbath. They're not community fish and even worse is they are aggressive with their own species. The minimum tank size I would suggest for 6 cories is 20 gallon.

Cories won't work in a ten gallon, and if you're trying to do a betta sorority, I think you need at least either six or eight, I can't remember for sure now. For that setup, I'd try to go with a 30g just to be safe.

Welcome to fishlore!
Your profile says that you don't know about the nitrogen cycle. This link should help https://www.fishlore.com/NitrogenCycle.htm
As stated above, 3 Bettas would not work in a 10 gallon tank. Although you can keep a single betta in the 10 gallon very happily. The cories you mentioned would be better in a 20 gallon I believe. Since you're still new to fish keeping (I believe) I wouldn't recommend doing a sorority. Doing a sorority tank are for more experienced and who know Bettas a bit more. It's a lot of work to put into sorority tanks. Hope you enjoy the forum
