I wouldn't go with the guppies. They don't do well with long fins, they like to nip betta's to death, if you decide to add one in later. It might not be such a good idea.
Neons are also very tasty snacks for betta's, angle fish, and anything that can fit it in there mouth.... which includes platies lol
I have danios and Cherry barbs. the Cherry barbs, don't like overly planted tanks, and some times don't even like being in schools. The two I had were sold to me cheaper because she couldn't keep them in with the others of there kind.
Danio's like schools of five or more, but play nice in groups of two. As long as one is female. ( not really good for a ten.... but it is there min requirement so says five cites I checked) danio's wouldn't be good in with long fins, they are nippers. Cherries seem to stick to themselves or harass the danio's
But that is just my experience with fish. You can get some Endlers they are like guppies but I think they have better color, and temperament. They are also very cheep at petco.
