Platy and Betta?

I have a verrry calm female betta, she doesn't go after my clown pleco, shrimp, snail, tetras, nothing.
I was curios about addind some Platys, would the platys nip at my female?
And do platys eat plants?

What's the tank size, They usually don't eat plants and no bettas, but we don't know if the tank is large enough to support some

16 gallon - 11 neon tetras, 6 Pygmy cories, 6 kuhli loaches and 1 male Betta
15 gallon - 1 male Betta, 3 platies, and 5 guppies
6 gallon - 1 male Betta

All planted tanks

In My Opinion a Betta deserves nothing smaller than a 5 gallon tank

I think that it will be fine, and if I may ask, where did you get the 20 gallon long, as I've been looking for one

16 gallon - 11 neon tetras, 6 Pygmy cories, 6 kuhli loaches and 1 male Betta
15 gallon - 1 male Betta, 3 platies, and 5 guppies
6 gallon - 1 male Betta

Pet Supply Plus. They are having a big sale (atleast where I am) 1 dollar per gallon. and most of their fish are only 1 dollar.
