Stocking a 25 gallon

    Okay I upgraded from 5 gallon to a 25 gallon. I already have a female guppy, around 2 dozen of her fry (1 month or so old) and an albino Cory catfish. I know I want to get another Cory for my first one. But what else should I put in the tank? (I don't want any snails or shrimp)

    And my dad just came home with a male beta so add that to the list.

    The corys should be in groups of 6+ so get at least 5 more.
    The Betta & guppies may not get along it'll depend on the Bettas temperament whether he does or not & he may see the fry as snacks if they're small enough to fit in his mouth.
    I would just get the extra corys & leave it at that for now as the guppy will probably have more fry.

    Okay. I actually wouldn't mind the beta eating some of the fry because I have way too many and no where to put them. Do cories of the same sex do well together?

    Yes they do, corys are very peaceful fish.
    I forgot to say get more albinos not a different kind of cory.
