I have a 22 gallon tank with a male betta and 2 female guppies. I was wanting to get some bottom feeders. Would a Betta be okay with Albino Cories? Also can Cories be kept in a tank with gravel instead of sand?

I'm assuming 22g is a long tank. But get 6 corys ;) for maximum fun & happiness. Small gravel is just ok; it depends on your vacuuming & water changes...gravel can hold more "crap" than say, sand. But cleanliness is more important size of substrate.

I wouldn't think 'pygmy' cories would count as bottom dwellers, unless you are counting Habrosus (I wouldn't say Pygmaeus or Hastatus)

Or consider one of the species of Aspidoras.

But yeah, clean water and the larger the group the better...
