I'll attest to the albino bronze cories being more active, but the regular bronze ones are much more calm and my pandas are the most active! Just goes to show you how fish can be so different!

Twenty-Eight:
1 Otos, 6 Guyana Leaf Fish, 2 Malayan Leaf Fish, 1 Orange Head Tapajos, 4 Bronze Cories, 3 Peppered Cories, 2 Panda Cories, 1 Skunk Cory

Seventy-Five:
3 Thread-finned Acara, 1 Jurupari, 1 Spiny Eel, 1 Bristlenose Pleco, 1 Festivum, 1 Spotted Raphael

I agree with Hawkian on the top, middle, bottom method. Also if you're worried about overcrowding, but want more going on, add some ghost shrimp to the bottom. They're small and are always working; although i don't know if the betta will bother them, i've never kept bettas

My one betta tears 'em up...but my other doesn't, just depends on the fish, ya know?
