Depends on the tank size & how its decorated. Typically fish that are not long finned or brightly colored do OK but a lot of it depends on everyones temperament including the Betta. Some fish will nip at a Betta, typically bottom feeders do well with Bettas.

It also depends on water type - hardness and pH. :)

Is it hard or soft, though? Tap water can be either depending on where you live.

Livebearers are going to be some of the best tankmates for you, then. :) Look at platys and Endlers. If it is moderately hard, not extreme, the more common cories, such as aenaus or peppered, may also be an option. :)
