Help Moving juvenile cory

I managed to save one baby peppered cory after my female laid eggs, I’ve had it in one of those nets for fish fry for about a few months, and he’s a decent size now :)

I’ve decided that now is a good time to move him in with some of my other fish, but two of my tanks seem like decent options to me:

-The 20 gallon that the net is currently in, I would move him in there but I feel like it’s a little big since the cory is so small.

-One of my 10 gallons, has a few large plants (getting more) currently in there is my dwarf gourami, small school of glow light tetras, and a small oto.

Please give me some suggestions! For clarification there are no other cories in either of the tanks, but there will be soon if that changes anything.

I would release him into the tank the beeder net is in. It is the water he is used to.
Thanks! Would you suggest that I wait until I get a group of cories in there before releasing him? I don’t have much experience with cories specifically but the ones I already have love swimming around together :)

I am confused. In the first post you say you have no other corys in either tank and this one says you already have some. If this is one of their babies I would put him where they are. Corys, unlike some other fish. readily accept the little ones. I have had cory fry about a 1/4 the size of the adults out and about foraging with the big ones.

I think I understand now. You have more than the 2 tanks you mentioned :) Put the little guy in with its parents.

How many corys do you have now? If it's enough to split into two groups you could release the young one into the tank it's in and add more. If not, put it with the rest.
