You can get hardness kits online or at petshops. Alternatively, contact your local water authority - they should know what it is in your area. :)

if you get a pleco, make SURE it's a bristlenose, they're the only readily available species that don't grow gigantic.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

You could add plates and corydoras. Those are the fish that I have had luck with.

I don't know what are you talking about! Me and the voices inside my head will prove you
wrong!

platies are hit or miss with bettas, we've got three who live in our sorority with no problem, but before they were there we'd tried several male bettas, and they would always attack the platies due to their bright coloration.

Again, it depends on water hardness. Tetras prefer slightly softer water with a lower pH than livebearers like platys.

Also, you'd need at least 6 neons, as they need schools.
