I have to get me a Siamese Flying Fox as well if I come across one. I think they're a better option than a few otos or bristlenose pleco.
I don't think that combination will work for more than a week before you'll start to notice problems like your betta getting his fins shredded.
Thanks for the advice, I'm also a little worried but so far he hasn't gotten any tears. The other fish have been staying to themselves and I haven't seen them chase him at all. I'm getting a new tank for him next week though, just in case. I wish I could keep him in the 10 gallon since I spent probably $40 getting it ready for him, but I'll move him if I see even one new tear.
Other than the the betta, my Siamese flying fox is my other favorite. :) My betta is completely uninterested in him, they'll just swim right by each other. Plus, they're super cute and fun to watch.
