well carefull, your tank isnt ready for algae eaters (shrimp, snails algae eating fish) and not ready for non hardy fish (most fish species, cories do fall in this category)
musho did you mean by this that cories are or are not hardy fish? it seems like you are saying they are not but from my experience they seem to be thoguh this may just be good luck. when i first got my 10g tank i cycled with 6 cories (not intentionally. this was when i was cluless and thoguht that all there was to fishkeeping was putting some fish into a contained volume of water and feeding once in a while) so anyway, i got the tank filled up with water, and had the cories in it within an hour or so i effectively did actually cycle with them but nobody had ever suggested that i should cycle first, or even that the process existed.
anyway my point was that all 6 made it and were and remain very healthy fish despite being used to cycle.
however - not recommended! tbh, now that i know a bit about cycling, i prefer a fishless cycle altogether
