Your tank is a 15-16 gallon tank. In my opinion, you are overstocked with mid-top level swimmers. You also have livebearers and if you don't have all males, you will be inundated with fry.

Corys should be kept in groups of 3, absolute minimum, or more. 5 is best. Yes, you have to feed them. They are scavengers but would only profit from you overfeeding the tank unless fed separately.

Fish only school when threatened by a predator, it's not a natural instinct in a home aquarium.

No, with all those other fish, you cannot get anything else. You are overstocked as it is. You don't have room.

Silver Dollars get HUGE! And they need to be in groups. Even if your tank was empty, it would not be appropriate for this species.
