I would go with neon tetras or glowlight tetras. NOT THE GLOFISH TETRA!!! Maybe some shrimp as well.

I refuse to buy ANY dyed animals ... Its so depressing ... well I have nowhere to put them if it doesnt work out ... So what are the chances that the glowlights will nip Finn?

Well it looks like mystery snails, Glowlights and a Betta is a good stocking :) it covers top middle and bottom so noone will be in each others way :)

I think even with this stocking Finn will still have plenty of room and he is very unlikely to be injured

Sounds good! Got one mystery snail and 2 ghost shrimp for my 5gal. They get along great. Make sure to add the Betta last though. Mystery snail is so cute, id highly recommend it :)

I already have one mystery snail I am thinking of getting 2 more :)

why add the Betta last? The tank has to stabilize before I add the Tetra so i cant add them for a few months.

and he didn't care at all when I added Jake

My last concern is what to feed everyone ... Can I just feed the Tetras the Omega One betta? The pellets are small enough

My tetras eat them once they're a little softer so I wouldn't say no to that. But I usually feed the girls first and then the neons also eat the bottom feeder wafer along with the algae wafer I throw in for my corys and pleco.

Its just so the Betta doesn't feel as if they're intruders in his territory and gets defensive. Oh you can stabilize the tank, but once you're ready to add the tetras, do a water change and rearrange / add decor, add the non aggressive fish, then your Betta

So it looks like its Omega One betta food all around :P and ok sounds good :) I cant add anything until next week at least ... Because Finn's filter is at maximum capacity and he doesnt get the Axolotl's filter until I get them their sponge filter.
