Exclamation Can I add another Cory catfish?

Hello guys!

I have a 10 gallon planted aquarium cycled with a Betta, and 3 corys.
My question is can my tank handle the extra bioload if I add another Cory?

thanks to everyone in advance!

If it's a species that gets 2"-3" then no.

It's more of a swimming space issue rather than a bioload one.

Not if they have adequate swimming room and are healthy. They should be swimming around the bottom and around not sitting in one spot.

Mine only swim around when food is present or they think food is about to be present/I'm in the room. Otherwise they find a shady spot and chill. They're all pretty healthy.

Op- are we talking peppered cory? Nano species? How big are the ones you have currently?
