Oh well you'd probably be good. You can get away with a little more just add them slowly over time and not all at once. Like one group every couple weeks. And corys are schooling fish that live in groups of hundreds in the amazon

Some fish require buddies. Corys, loaches and otos really like numbers in their schools in order for them to keep healthy and happy. This is where lots of species research prior to purchase comes in handy.

Oh, and toss that 1 gallon per fish thing. It's a bunch of hogwash.

Welcome to Aquarium Advice! The corys will probably live longer if kept in larger groups because they are not as stressed

Would the corydoras be pals with the loaches?
