Corydoras would definitely do well in a well oxygenated tank.

Depending on the types of Corydoras specie, a 1 gallon may be too small unless we are talking of the dwarf, such as C. pymaeus, C. hastatus, C. habrosus.

Just to clear some probable misconceptions, fishes from South America hails from rivers of very varied water parameters, black water (lowest pH even to pH of 2-3 in Rio Negro), clear water and white water (highest pH).

For plecos and corydoras, it would be good to QT the fish upon purchase as these armoured catfish would carry lots of bacteria, parasites. When stress, such bacteria/parasites would attack the fish resulting in casualties.

One thing to note: some of these fishes are rather sensitive to salt, so do add them carefully. A medication good for relieving the stress of these fishes would be waterlife myazin.
