Smile 9 gallon False Julii tank

So I got some False Juliis in my 9 gallon now. They look so big compared to my pandas. Anywho,was wondering if you think I can put anything else in there? Or is that max lol. I was looking at guppies,but read alot people have them drop like flies (kinda like my bettas!),so that makes me wary. Any other somewhat colorful fish I could have in there? My dad likes the glofish,but eh I dont. Not natural I tell ya!! We are going to a large aquarium superstore so maybe they will have some thing that we like.

3 gallon male betta
10 gallon male betta
12 gallon QT
30 gallon
1 Pl*co, Brochis Splenden,False Julii Cory,Pygmy Corys,Female Betta,Harlequin Rasbora,Tetras
55 gallon Possible Barb tank?!

i would not recommend adding anymore fish to this tank you are already over stocked with the cory cats....they from what i have read about the false juliis is they require at least a 30 gallon....if you like to cory cats you can get some albinos instead....they dont get more than an inch

Oh,that stinks. I read so many different sites and each have different tank sizes for them. I do have Panda Corys in a 12 gallon with some Pygmys and Pencilfish. Those guys seem to like the same temp. range.

Panda corys are cooler water fish than some other species, as Molliefan09 mentions; they come from the Rio Pachitea, Huanaco and Rio Ucayali system in Peru, rivers fed by melting snow in the Andes and thus a bit cooler (low 70's F) than down in the Amazonian forest. However, they do quite well (at least for me) in my 90g which is 78F. But I would never put them higher; I had a group in another tank and the heater failed overnight; temp got to mid-80's and all the pandas were gone. Corydoras pygmaeus is very similar; they occur in the Rio Madeira system, and 79F is the limit for their health. I have both these corys and the pencilfish species (Nannobrycon eques) you have in my 90g at 78 and they're fine.
