Cory stocking

I currently have 3 peppered cories and 2 platies in a 15 gallon tank. I was thinking of getting 3 more cories, but not sure if I should get 3 more peppered ones, or switch it up and get 3 albinos or pandas. I'm guessing the peppered cories would be happier with 3 of their own kind, but 3 albinos or pandas should be okay too right?

No, peppered cories prefer lower temperatures, while corydoras aeneas (albino cories) prefer higher temperatures. Panda Cories on the other hand LOVE cooler temperatures, so they would be perfect with your peppered cories. Also there should be no problems with stocking different cory species together
