Just to pop in an add on, I really wouldn't suggest getting tank mates unless you have a spare tank that will meet their needs for both a quarantine time, and if something should happen to go wrong. You cannot quarantine five pygmy cories in a one gallon for a week. They are rather delicate fish in terms of water parameters, and should something go wrong, you probably don't want to deal with the water changes you would need to do in a one gallon for a betta. Some bettas will /not/ tolerate tank mates, no matter how docile they seem, and the other fish will need to be removed, or you will need to remove the betta /to a suitable home/. If you consider any other fish for his tank, you must consider being able to care for them separately if it does not go as planned.
