10g tank fish numbers?

I currently have a ten gallon tank with three albino corys that are maybe an inch to an inch and a half long and a betta. I'm wondering if there is room to add anything else? I don't want to over crowd the tank. If there is room, any suggestions?

you might have room for just a few more small fish but you might be pushing it. is your betta male or female?

My betta is male. I was kind of eyeing the lemon tetras at the fish store which is why I asked.

they only get to be about 2 inches so 4-6 maybe. dont know much about their personality....if they are nippy you might want to stay away from them or they will nip your betta.

Could add a few rasboras of the smaller kind. But make sure the betta has a place to kinda protect or he will chase the fish away anywhere he is if he is a territorial one.

You should add some more cories, they do best in groups of 6+

My suggestion too would be to add some more cories. I'd add another 3 and then leave it at that. In groups cories are very entertaining to watch. I think you'd find that if you added them then your tank would become very lively so you wouldn't miss the schooling fish so much.
