    How many cories can go in my 10 gallon with my 8 neon tetra. What species??? Dwarf? Peppers?

    I wouldn't advise putting cories in with your current stock, not that they aren't compatible, but corydoras are best kept in groups of 6 or more and with 8 Neon's in 10 gallons your somewhat limited.

    Maybe accentuate the tank with some nice plants really make the Neon's pop?

    None (sorry) and certainly no Peppers !!!

    Oh and btw do the shrimp need a sponge filter because I really don't wanna have to attach a pre filter with all the new plants just getting there roots digging

    Yes, Shrimp definitely need a sponge filter or a sponge pre-filter. If they have babies and also when you get them, they'll be very very small and your intake will suck them up. I have an internal filter which I placed a Knee High over to keep shrimp out and a pre filter on all my other filter intakes. It won't hurt your plants. I have dirted, planted tanks.

    I only have a spongefilter in my "throw in-tank". In my other 8 tanks (6 with shrimp) none what so ever.
