Question Catfish/species tank stock? HEL

My tank is Fluval 23 Vista. 30" wide, 18" high, 12" deep. I've planted and started cycling today. I have time to find the right fishies. I want a species tank with catfish to help out. What suggestions can you AAdvice experts give me? I understand that corys need a few other corys to survive. My tank isn't large enuf for corys. So, what catfish will be happy only having a partner? How about the species and how many. I want all my fishies to be docile and friendly. Help needed. Love all you people on this great website.

Your tank sounds big enough for multiple corydoras, oto cats are also small and need a group.
If you are worried you could get pygmy corys. Half the size but they still need a group.

I agree with Sara, you have enough room for 4-6 Cory cats. Essentially you have a 29 gallon tank.
