My first stocking list
Okay, here is my first list - I'm trying to stay with small schooling fish. The Cherry Barbs are for their reddish coloring. I think the Cories and Rasboras are a must.
75 gal tank
Artificial plants and decor
2 AC 110 HOB
1 BN Pleco
4 Skunk Cories
4 Bronze Cories
4 Sterbai Cories
10 Cherry Barbs
10 Pearl Danios
15 Harlequin Rasboras
Do the Cories count as 1 school. I was told they will hang-out together.
My 75 gal Journal & My Dual 29 gal Journal
75 gal - Smudge Spot Cories, Pristella Tetras, Scissortail & Red Tail Rasboras, Zebra Danios, Wild Caught BNP
29 gals - Left Tank - Diamond Tetras. Right Tank - Harlequin Rasboras, Peacock Gudgeons
Future 40 Long - Fiery Black Shiners, Panda Garra

The corys do not count as one school and I would not bet on them hanging out together. Your best bet for corys is to get 12 of the same so that you can see the corys all truly hang in a group. If you cannot do that, Get two sets of six since they are not comfy in smaller groups.
You have plenty of room to add to your other three schools IMO also, I would be tempted to double all three.
Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

+1 to the above
My corys were a lot more active once I increased the school size to 10 from 6. Once I can find some more, I will increase the school to about 14 or 16.If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

+1, cories must be all the same, just like tetras.
You'll love the harleys -- they're one of my favourite fish. :)
A heads up that danios are super active so if you like peaceful tanks they might not be the fish for you.
