how many neon tetras / cory catfish?

Hi all!!

I just got a 20 gallon tank for my betta and mystery snail, and I am planning on introducing some tank mates as well.

Today I got 6 neon tetras and 2 albino corydoras, who are all currently hanging out in a 3.5 gal quarantine tank. I’ve been reading up on these guys and I know now that they are both schooling fish, so i was thinking about getting a couple more of each. I want to make sure they're all happy, but I also don’t want to overcrowd my quarantine tank or my 20 gallon. What do you recommend?

I think 6 more neons and 4 more corys would be fine.

Cool, thanks! Do you recommend getting them all right away or waiting until the current fish are out of the quarantine tank?

I think the current fish you have in your QT is more than enough for a 3.5g. Finish your quarantine, move them to your main tank, then repeat with some more fish.
