It depends on the betta's personality whether or not he'll tolerate tankmates.

What if its a blue crowntail, I put in 5 neons with my male and he killed one and stressed another to where it died a few days later. I removed them and out the survivors with my female and they are doing great. Sometimes if they come up and steal her pellets she will chase them for a few seconds but she always stops before she gets close to them. And the neons never learn they still try to take her food, in fact yesterday on stole a brine shrimp right from her mouth, she was not fond of that but she actually didnt chase it.

Eventually Im going to start a neon only tank with a large shoal of them.

I know that bettas can and do live with other fish and are fiine but personally, I'd rather have mine living alone.
