Ten gallon stocking
So let's say that I have a ten gallon with 3 platies (1 male 2 females). I also have 2 cories (which I am thinking of rehoming because they were kind of rescued). Could I have room for a scarlet badis? They seem really neat. Would it bug my RCS? Thanks!
I think you should keep the corys in there...maybe even get one more? This is assuming it is a small cory like the bronze cory about 3" max size.
Do you have plants in the tank? with plants that would not be a problem. Make sure you drip acclimate the scarlet badis so not to shock him.
This would be your tank with the 3rd cory. the corys would be happier:
Good idea on using that site! Why didn't. I think of that idea? I do have live plants. The cories are panda cories which are, from my knowlage, a smaller species. Would the scarlet badis do anything to my shrimp? I did forget to mention that I have a bunch of platy fry in a hang on refugium. If that changes stocking at all.

Panda Cory are smaller species. I wish I had some.
Well because you only have 2 corys it will be fine getting the badis now. Especially because their in their own net. You should get another tank just for the fry because when they get bigger...it will be a problem. Once you do that just get the other cory.
The hang on refugium is this small plastic (it runs about half the length of my 10 gallon) tank. It has a bubbler that sucks water up into it ( kind of like how a sponge filter sucks water up) and then it overflows out back into the tank. Pretty cool actually. It keeps all of them safe and sound, while having a steady flow, and it doesn't take up space in the aquarium.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
