Cories are good tank mates, What size tank we talking about?

some tetras will bite betta's long, flowing finnage
Some say mollies are ok, some say not as mollies benefit from brackish water.

I'm not sure about compatibility with a betta but,

the cory catfish and neons should both be in schools....at least 5, preferablly 6....

what size tank do you have?

Anything under a 5 gallon is to unstable, You might get a cycle and have it go fine for some time and then boom you loose it,,
I get that all the time with my 3 gallons, Be good for a month, Then it just looses it,

Mollies could pose a risk for the betta. I tried to keep mollies with angelfish and discus but they began nipping at both the angelfish and the discus fins. While betta could possibly hold off these attacks should they occur,,it would no doubt stress the betta.
