Question Is it possible for a betta to coexist with these fish?

So basically, we had a betta in our 55 gallon and now he is in a pitcher because we got some other fish. These are the fish in the tank:

2 red eyed tetras
3 black fin tetras
1 glow fish danio pink
1 glow fish tetra
4 gaint danios
blue gourami

I have read that some people keep bettas with giant danios but others advise against it. What do you all think about this combination??

Gouramis are never suppose to be housed with bettas. They're from the same family and very aggressive. Also I tried danios with my betta before and they ate his tail so I wouldn't go with danios. Not sure about the other ones

2 red eyed tetras yes
3 black fin tetras yes
1 glow fish danio pink maybe
1 glow fish tetra maybe
4 gaint danios No
blue gourami NO

As stated before, never house gouramis with bettas.
