Zebra fish (Danio) i found they do well with bettas, They are very fast so the betta can chase them as much as he wants and none will get hurt. They are also quite hardy little fish. some people say they can nip fins on other fish but i have never had a problem with that in the many years i have owned danios. (any fish can nip fins) (Just keep them fed) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danio

Zebra danios a fairly active and shouldn't be placed with bettas due to there activity, they also are sub tropical fish and there optimal temperature range is slightly lower than the bettas prefered minimum temperature

eehh forgot about the temp.
You could try some platys or some swordtails i found male swordtailes are not the best because of sometimes the betta nipping the males tail.

Yup. They can become very nippy because of there long fins, and color, I wouldn't recommend them either. Platies would be a great choic enough!

If your community tank has compatible fish, and can handle the bio load. Then I would get them today to let them settle in
