I would not recommend a Scarlet Badis with large fish (the livebearers compared to the tiny Badis are huge
). Badis can be intimidated. They can also be fussy eaters, requiring live food and if lucky frozen; prepared foods are not always eaten. I have three in my 10g, and a shrimp; the Badis is much too small to bother a shrimp.
The platy if full grown might eat the shrimp. And three platy in a 10hg is about it, although the corys are OK.
