Your tank needs to be an at least 10 gallon to have fish tankmates. So is it? And yes, Neons can be with Bettas. However, there maybe some nipping here and there.

Female Guppies are best with Bettas. The male's colors can make the Betta think it's another Betta. In other words, no guppies with lots of color. Get pale ones or ones with less color. They might get shredded or eaten. O_O

Another tankmate can be Cardinal Tetras, Pigmy or Dwarf Cory Catfish, Platies, Mystery Snails, and others. If your tank is 5 gallons and lower, Nerite Snail if you have a algae problem or even shrimp such as Red Cherry shrimp or Ghost shrimp. Hope you find the perfect tank mate!! :)

BTW, make sure to put the threads you make into the correct sections. This one should've went into the "Betta Compatibility" section.

LebronTheBetta is just trying to help by asking the size of your tank (if we know the tank size, we can help suggest fish for you) You cannot have a neon tetra on its own as they are schooling fish (I think 5 or 6 was the minimum amount for a school?) So if you have a large enough tank you could have a nice sized school of neon tetra :)

your only choice of tank mates at that size of tank are shrimp and snails. Which kind is up to you. Just don't get an apple snail, those get way to big for your tank.

all of them are good. Nerite snails (zebra snails) are the best because they put out the least amount of bio load. As long as you don't get one as big as a tennis ball you should be alright.
