You can try your betta with guppies. Sometimes it seems to work and sometimes it doesn't. Just be prepared with a backup plan. Or you could get all female guppies. They aren't as colorful and aren't usually targeted.

I do NOT think you should add guppies because they look too much like a betta, and your betta will try to attack it. You could add catfish since they stay low near the gravel and don't bother the betta much. I had a cory with my betta and they were fine, my betta didn't really care much for the catfish. You could add snails cos they can hide in their shells if the betta try to attack it. And for glofish, it really depends on the temper of your betta.

Good LUCK!

Why not try male Endlers as an alternative to guppies? They are still colourful but seem to excite a betta's anger less.

Before you stock, though, you should take note of the pH and hardness of your water and choose fish to suit.
