I've heard its not the greatest ideas to keep gourami's and swordtails with a betta.

From my experience, I kept a betta with 2 Bleeding Heart Tetras, 2 male guppies and an algea eater. And later on I added 2 female mollies. My betta was fine with them and never bothered them.

Though, that doesn't mean all bettas will like those types of fish, you kinda have to take a chance and try it.

I miss that tank. :c (they all died from ick)

bettas generally prefer long tanks to tall ones. something like a halfmoon would probably find it super stressful to try and swim all the way to the top with his heavy fins.
