Platy's and most cory's are great.
I recomend oto's too but Envy seems to get a little too curious about them and chases them alot.

Most ground feeders I think will do.

A big no is tiger barb and any barb really, same for puffers they are known to love fin nipping.

Guppies it depends on the betta, in all i wouldnt risk it.

Chi, Envy, Nephilium, Jezabel, Lilith, Ariel, Psi, Ki

The reason for which guppies are risky, is that they are schooling fish, they reproduce very fast, and they are very colorful that brings out aggresiveness in the betta, thus the risk. Wild guppies are less dangerous because they are duller, but then again not worth the risk.

Also not any ground feeder is good to be a tankmate for a betta, some need extra tank space, like a Pleco, which can grow HUGE.

I DO NOT recommend platies because they have the same issue as the guppy, and they can be nippy. They could nip at your betta's fins and that isn't a good thing :/

For more information check here :D

I just found the site and it pretty much sums up all I think about some of the tankmates.

Just wanted to add you can go to aqadvisor.com and punch in tank size and they can give you a list of species that will be good tank mates and tell you if you tank will be overstocked or not...just a thought.

10 HM, 3 HMPK, 5 HMPK fry
8 German Blue Ram, 5 Green Dragon BNP, 4 Albino BNP, 4 Calico BNP, 6 Red BNP, 5 Kuhli Loaches, 2 ADF, 7 Peppered Cories, & 6 Tiger Endlers + Fry

AsukaBetta- thanks for the advice. I am going to go for white cloud mountain minnows. Although if my Pet shop doesn't have them I'll get zebra fish, because I know they have them. By 17 gallon do you mean *my 7 gallon?
I would love to make a female sorority, but I can't unfortunately. I have two male bettas, and only 2 tanks. I'm not allowed another. Although if we move house and I get a bigger room I may be able to convince my parents.*
HorseyQueen- Cories are really cute. I got two albinos, absolutely insane.*
Aemaki09- I checked out that site. It's really good and cool, thanks for recommending it!

According to the site Aemaki09 gave me, it says I could have 4 albino cories, a betta, 6 white cloud mountain minnows and a nerite snail. *This only uses up 70% of my space. Do you reckon I could follow that. I would keep up with water changes.
I really want to but, I need to make sure that's okay. This is for my 15 gallon

Thank you I really appreciate it!

To close your eyes will not ease another's pain" - ancient chinese proverb.
You can always do something to help another human or animal, something small could mean the world to them.
Bettas- Johnny and Bill. Both veil tails, but definetly not common.
And two crazy Albino Corydoras, who haven't gotten names yet.
