Should I add Cories?

Ever since I moved my Clowns out of the 29 gallon (which had a small school of cories) they have seemed way more shy.

I was thinking (now that I have the 75 going) of adding another small school of cories since the Clowns really seemed to like the addition of the active little bottom feeders.

Do you all think this would be a good addition to make them feel more secure? I know I've moved them quite a bit in the past year and they do come out with lights on occasionily but they are way more active at night (I can tell by the amount of plants they uproot). I'd like to see more of them.

I was thinking of getting 5 of the more interesting looking cories. I know it can't hurt but it is going to add to my bioload. Which, when all is said and done will be:
