    I have one male betta and one snail in a 20 gallon, I was wondering if I could put 6 albino corys in this tank.

    Also sorry if the picture is blurry. 1529109785662.jpg

    Yes :) You can choose Sterbai, Bronze, or the Albino.

    I'm going with albino, their nice looking, hardy and my LFS has so many.

    I have albinos too :)

    Especially with that pale substrate albinos will work well. My only concern is are there any sharp edges on that gravel? You need rounded/soft ground for cories.

    Also WHEN you add the cories, pull the betta out off the tank. Add the cories let them settle for an hour or two and then put the betta back. You'll have less aggression that way and he'll be fine in a jaw for an hour or two.

    It's just your regular aquarium gravel, it can be kind of sharp. Also would a breeder box work to keep my betta in, I'd rather do that than keep him in a jar.

    I was going to get some sand and make it half and half

    With cories it would be better to go all sand.
