More corys would be fine, different species if you are thinking that, with say 5 of each new species although 3-4 will work. Five are suggested by some authorities, and I must say that in my tanks they do well in groups of five when I can get them.
However, I just spotted something I had missed earlier, and that is the Dojo Loach. This fish will attain up to 10 inches and is reported to readily eat small fish, which a cory would presumably be to this loach. Also, the Dojo is strictly speaking cold water, I believe 77F is the absolutel top of its temperature tolerance. It is a social fish that should be in groups, minimum 3. I do not like suggesting others get rid of fish, but I can only look at this from the whole perspective, and if this were my tank I would want to resolve this little issue either by removing the loach or increasing it with two more, which of course impacts on other things in the tank. And lowering the temp to better suit the loaches wuld mean trouble for the other upper fish. In other words, in my opinion, this is not a good match.
