Do I have to get 5 of the same type or can I get a variety of colors?

You can get a variety, but try not to combine types that grow to very different sizes or prefer very different temperatures (eg emeralds and pandas are not well matched)

Hello Lady...

Corydoras are most comfortable in a group or "shoal" of their own kind. If you can't get them all the same species, then get all small species like Pygmies and Pandas for instance. All Corys are peaceful though and won't bother one another if they're different.
