20gal

I'm picking up a free 20 gallon tank tomorrow and I was thinking either to move the girls over to the 20 gallon or to stock it with a bunch of other fish. Either way, I'll have a 10 or 20 gallon tank to stock!

So, what can I get?

I want to keep the new tank betta friendly in case I fall in love with another betta.

As of right now, I'm thinking:
2 Dwarf Frogs
8 Neon Tetras
1 or 2 Bristlenose plecos
1 or 2 snails (probably mystery)
shrimp, lots

What else is betta friendly? how many fish can I have in this tank?
I think I might plant it too, natural style, so plant suggestions?

Also I'm on a budget, so where can I get these things for a deal? I'll need to cycle the tank, probably with plants then maybe snails and shrimp

Neons are risky because they seem to get nippy without provocation occasionally but I have them and rarely have issues. Corys make excellent tank mates but need very stable water conditions and sand substrate, you'd need at least 6 but people have had success with less. I have 4 and they are very busy and happy little buddies. Cherry barbs are nice and get Along well with bettas.
