cory setup question

Quick setup question. I'm currently cycling my first aquarium (20g long) and want to set it up for a group of 6 corydoras aeneus, either bronze or albino variety I've not decided yet. I've read that they need places to shelter; will they be happy to shelter between plants or do they like to have a cave of some sort? Given that I'm limited on space I don't want to add something unnecessary. Thanks :)

I would suggest that you leave at least 20% open area for them to swim around in. In my 20 gallon longs I like to place a hiding space on one side and the open swimming space ( minus a few plants) on the other. By feeding in the open space, you can train the Cories to come out into the open when you come around. :)
