Are you sure the danio is a danio? I'll try to find other pictures. Any clear markings?
its a black tetra: http://sea-animalzz.blogspot.pt/2012...eon-tetra.html

If you think your Betta will be fine with more fish around then go for it

As for the CAE, I'm not entirely sure but I think they're tropical fish and wouldn't like the temps. Reading now it likes temps between 74-79 so if the pond stays around that temp then I think it will be okay depending on it's size and if the goldfish can get it in it's mouth or not since they are curious eaters lol I would just try to find someone who has a bigger tank and wants it or post it online or facebook or something to get the word out that the fish needs home.

You can't donate it back to the store or anything?

Yeah they usually wouldn't tell you that because eventually the fish would die from being stunted and then most would just buy a new fish, if I didn't know better that's what I'd do at least. We used to do that when I was a kid too since we didn't know much about them either. But that's okay, you know now ^_^

Yeah, you can try it and well if it doesn't work out....it doesn't work out I guess. But it's better than keeping him crammed in a 10 gallon I guess then right? Just make sure to acclimate him really well to the water since the chemistry is bound to be different! For the first half of his life he'll eat the algae and stuff that's in there so that's good but as he grows he will eventually start to eat meaty things, goldfish beware when he get's too big! o.o I don't think he'll make it to the full 27cm though, that's pretty darn big!

Yep, low bio-load and again it does depend on the Betta but they should be fine with enough shelter to hide and stuff like that. But there's still the issues of your neons though, they definitely can't go into the pond unfortunately.
