New tank / fish set-up

Hello, Im new to AA and the world of fish care... I have a few questions.. I have a 10G, Aqueon filter, 50w heater, cycled tank and 7 fish;

2 Albino Cories
2 Yellow Male Guppies
3 Tetra Glofish

They all seem to get along for the most part but the biggest of the glofish chases the other glofish and guppies sometimes - from research I believe this is just their way of playing but I don't know for sure - should I be worried?

I have noticed the smaller of my male guppies stays hidden at the bottom of the tank away from all the other fish, most of the others are on the right side of the tank hanging out.

I also was wondering if I have overcrowded my tank.

Thanks in advance, I welcome all advice.

Welcome! Try looking at aqadvisor.com to find out how full your tank is. As for the guppy, could you post a picture of the tank and/or the guppy itself? More hiding places make the fish feel much safer, and they won't hide as much. Other causes of hiding may be if the other fish are being too aggressive or if the guppy is sick. One last thing I noticed was that you said you have 2 cories, but they prefer to be in larger groups.
