You can get hardness kits online or at petshops. Alternatively, contact your local water authority - they should know what it is in your area. :)

if you get a pleco, make SURE it's a bristlenose, they're the only readily available species that don't grow gigantic.

You could add plates and corydoras. Those are the fish that I have had luck with.

platies are hit or miss with bettas, we've got three who live in our sorority with no problem, but before they were there we'd tried several male bettas, and they would always attack the platies due to their bright coloration.

Again, it depends on water hardness. Tetras prefer slightly softer water with a lower pH than livebearers like platys.

Also, you'd need at least 6 neons, as they need schools.
