Yeah the Cory's need a bigger tank, but if it is just temporary you may be ok . Actually, the fry will be ok alone. You could get snails or shrimp to do cleanup.

No more Cory's for that tank. Maybe six female and two males with the catfish. Find a fish store willing to trade in guppies. I used to rotate adult guppies with young adults to keep the cycle going. With my 55, I once traded in 100 pair of guppies. I traded them in for a Marineland Emperor filter and 1 huge canister of Tetramin. I got a lot of equipment and food for free. I now live way out In the sticks so the drive to the LFS is too long.

I have had historically 3-4 catfish in a 10 gallon with success as a newbie some 40 years ago. Now, I'm a less is more person. Just cool it with the cats for now.
