Thunderbelly is on a distinguished road
Default is it necessary?

I have a 37G XT aquarium, footprint is 12x30 inches. Inside, I have some knight goby's, guppies, rice fish and bavarian rams. Prowling the bottom, I have a twig catfish and shortfin albino bristlenose pleco. The question is, should I get a herd of corys, to toss in there as well? The rice fish hang out in the top 4 inches of water, the rams usually hang out in the bottom half or so. The guppies, well, they are guppies cruising everywhere.
Would the corys be active enough, or will they be hard to spot, like the gobys?

I can't speak to your stocking levels, but cories like to school and they school on the bottom. If they are in a school of at least 5 (preferably 7 or more), they are not shy.
