Okay, LISTEN to this.
The biggest message me promote here at Bettafish is "research BEFORE you buy" Because your fish will die if you don't know proper care.
FIRST, zebra danios are VERY nippy schooling fish requiring I think it was 5 fish minimum.
SECOND, those blue and red fish are called Neon tetras. They are SUPER delicate, and if your water has a PH above 7 they have a hard time and can't stand ammonia very well. They also need at least 5.
THIRD, cories are reccomended 3 (preferably 4) to 5.
And in that tank you can't put all those fish species in (The right amount I mean) because then you'd be way over stocked. Some bettas can't handle tankmates. the tetras and danios can and will nip your fish way too much. All the fish will likely die from stress and/or bad conditions.
The reason there is no nipping now is everyone is trying to get accustomed to the tank and are too stressed out for that.
Sorry to sound rough, but that's the truth. You always ALWAYS research before buying. Return some of those fish and try again is all I can say.
A better stock would be say... get 3 more cories (so you have 4) your 1 Betta, and maybe 1-3 female guppies.
If guppies are jewels, than Bettas must be rainbows
