I'd get either neon tetras or porkchop/hengeli rasboras .. I love my hengelis.. I don't have any with my betta but I"m upgrading soon to a 20 and might try them together.

Here's the Hengeli Rasbora

Yesterday one of the Pandas was swimming around crazy fast on the upper levels of the tank, I guess he stressed out Birdee, because he went for him, literally grabbed him, shook it, and threw it LOL.
I saw the whole thing, was pretty funny.
The pandas fine, has a little nip on the bottom of its rear fin, and Birdee hasn't bothered with him since.
I guess he just doesn't like the panda all up in his grill.

I'd do a school of 8 Ember Tetras and 4 Otos for the bottom.

Flame - Red and Blue Veiltail Male
Oswald - Blue Halfmoon Male

Embers need soft acidic water. They are also quite shy and may lose their colour in tanks that aren't densely planted.
