Betta Sorority

What types of fish do you like to put with your betta females? :)

I have a 28 gallon tank and its base is going to be 8 betta females.

I am also looking to add:

Cory Catfish
Otocinclus (Aka Otos)
Ghost Shrimp
Platys ( Not sure which ones, suggestions and pics from petsmart.com please :) )
Mollies

The tank is going to be heavily planted. Suggestions please from everyone. <3

-Neon Tetras
-Black Neon Tetras
-Harlequin Rasboras
-Glowlight tetras
-Danios
-Glass catfish (interesting species and I have heard of them being kept together with bettas with no problems)

Not sure if mollies will be a good idea. I hear they prefer brackish water (?)

I keep mollies in Freshwater, in the community tank.
All are doing well and are perfectly healthy and still spawn.

Gold something or other tetra, the kind you can see their innards. Tetras of any kind though are love.

Is there a way to keep mollies from breeding, or a way to tell for all female ones? I don't want my dad calling and freaking out saying he's got tons of fish babies XD

The bettas would likely eat the fry anyway, but I would stay away from mollies and platies--they prefer harder water and they're semi-aggressive, so they might not be a good match for bettas.. If I were you, I'd choose tetras or danios and cories, and skip the mollies, platies, and otos. I think the color of the females would clash with the platies also--it doesn't suit my personal aesthetic, anyway. The danios and tetras should act more like dither fish, as well. I have a school of celestial pearl danios in my big tank. They're tiny and gorgeous--they make the tank look gigantic.
