I calculated it on AqAdvisor.com site last night and in my tank I could have 10 frogs and 1 betta. Bettas generally get along with ADFs and can't really do much harm to them anyway. ADFs should NOT be kept in a deep tank though with lots of current. They are weak swimmers.
I would NOT put glo fish or neons with your betta. Too much risk.
Glo fish: Genetically modified zebra danios. Very expensive for a little fish too. They are VERY active too. I recommend at least a 20g.
Neons: Nippy little things. Bettas can and do eat them too.
Guppies: big bio load. Bettas will often nip at them.
Otos make great tank mates!!! Except, they must always have algae to eat! They easily starve. Very sensitive.
Considering your situation with having to keep your bettas in small tanks, I HIGHLY recommend you divide the tank in 3-4 sections (if it's a 10g) and take care of your current fish instead of getting more new ones!!!!
haha doggy hog for a minute i thought that these were Otos
haha lol. are these good tank mates too?
also what about these swordtail fish?
