I would just add a few more of those corys, to have a school of them. I'd say up to 3-4 more. They'll do fine cleaning the sand, since you still need to do weekly water changes.

Those golden algea eaters become really aggressive and they grow big! I nearly brought one, and I'm so glad I did my research afterwards and didn't get one. Try a couple of otocinclus, they only grow to 5cm or so and are really quiet and peaceful. They are cute too!

Oh ok. Well I would add 2-4 more of those. They are social fish and thrive with interaction of theirown kind. You could leave it at that. IF you want more fish you could also try 6-8 neon tetras/black neons? They are all small fish so it shouldnt add much to the bio load. Do you know how you are going to feed your betta? Making sure he eye enough (or not too much) food in a community can be a bit tricky.
