    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?

    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.
