Cories should be in groups. Very social fish. Most run around 2-2.5"
There are dwarf species that stay around an inch.

Once you have 100+ Shrimp you can add Celestial Pearl Danios as they are harmless to adults and larger juveniles. Maybe a Scarlet Badis as well.

Otos are Shrimp safe.

Dwarf Corys are safe...

Don't mix Ghost Shrimp with dwarf Shrimp, they'll compete for food and may kill them. Ghosts can be very predatory.

If you give the Shark a good cave to guard at one end that may become it's territory. That way they can be snarky and the other fish can live without too much harassment. AFAIK Rainbows aren't as...

Who's the perp?

My Cherry Barbs never touched a plant.

Try adding an Algae wafer or a leaf of organic rinsed lettuce and see if anyone bites ? It won't be conclusive proof as many fish will eat wafers.

Every Betta is different. I had one that attacked and killed Cories. I do think full sized Cories would be pushing it. Even AquAdvisor said 6 Peppereds and a Betta was 111% that is overstocked.

I'd leave him in the big tank. Use silk or real plants or rounded stones for hiding areas.

Goldfish kill themselves in small tanks too easily from Ammonia.

Hatchet Fish like quiet tanks that aren't too bright with floating plants.

Test your water if you lose fish.

A bottom feeder is not necessary. Just gravel vac when you do water changes. If you want to try ghost shrimp then make sure you've got some thick plants for the shrimp to hide in.

Also Bettas need quiet water. Make sure filter has adjustable flow and you may need to reduce or stop the bubbles.

They may be intimidated by the Blue Gouramis. Gouramis often fight. Bullying can be very subtle. Are there plenty of floating and tall plants to break up sight lines ?
