Danio's= fin nippers!! They also, from what I've read, need 20 gallon tanks (very active little schoolers) If I were you I'd just completely rearange the tank and add Drax tommorrow. If he still goes for the fish, you should return them.
By the way, Mollies thrive in brackishwater so unless you keep that tank really clean then you'll have Mollies with fungus. You should keep either 1 mollie or 2 females to one male ratio of Mollies. Platies are the same (Althought I've read that you can keep multiple males without any females so *shrugs*) I've read you should keep Mollies in 15+ gallons. AND, I've seen gigantic ordinary, every day Mollies, larger than a Betta for sure.
Certain tank mates almost every Betta, even very aggressive ones, tend to allow, are cories. Pygmy cories seem great as they just seem to camoflauge and are almost never noticed by Bettas, but they are really active (well, a little less active than Bettas but still) and you'll certainly notice them. Not to mention completely peacful, they'd definatly ignore ghost shrimp, any thing really. So I'd reccomend Cories, and I'd really reccomend Pygmies due to the fact that they are just less noticed by the Betta.

If guppies are jewels, than Bettas must be rainbows
