Definitely not.
My sister put a goldfish and a betta together when she was younger and the betta killed the goldfish in just a few hours.
Goldfish need LOTS of room too.. some say minimum 29 gallon.

None :(

Nope, Never, Bad idea.

Gold fish need temperatures in the 60s, to high and they die. Also as they get older and bigger they will attack the betta.

Bettas need temperatures im the high 70s, any lower and they will die.

Not to mention you'll need a tank over 20 gallons for the 2 of them, a goldfish needs 20 gallons alone.
