Betta and .....?

Hi everyone i just got myself a 54 liter tank so far with 1 betta, no gravel , i have heater and no plants as of yet. I would like to get more colorful fish that work with the Betta.

I was thinking about ghost shrimp, Danio's, corie's, platies, tetras, apistos, barbs , Endlers and German blue rams..

I would like some help on if these are good choices or any good advice ..Thanks

That is about 14gal-a nice school of 5-6 dwarf cory cats and a school of male endlers would look nice...you could also add shrimp and snails

Do you plan any live plants

Not really big enough for danios, rams or most cichlids for that matter

I would like to go for live plants for the other fish to hide, endlers are nice will have to see if my petstore has them, if not i will probably go for something else but choosing the right colorful fish isn't easy i am surprised my hair is still there lol

It's not very polite to post a ton of website links referring people to go elsewhere for advice ;)

Not to mention that I have seen some TERRIBLE advice coming from the yahoo answers section...

It's ok! I've just seen some very bad advice about betta keeping on yahoo... "split a 2.5 gallon three ways, and change the water once a week!" :/
