They are pretty peaceful, should be fine for a betta, as long as you have a good school of 6+.
Might wanna look into the water hardness though, most tetra don't do too well in it.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

Diamonds are okay in medium hard water, but not harder than 12 dGH. As for temperament, I haven't read anything that says they are especially nippy, but it is a good idea to keep a group of more than 6 as 6 is the bare minimum. Here is some more information: Diamond Tetra (Moenkhausia pittieri) Profile
