Cories are easy to feed! otos will need the occasional blanched veggie to supplement. whatever it is, you have a month to decide whilst cycling your tank :)

Oh if he is very agressive then maybe you should stick to snails :)

My tank is 78 degrees always I check it daily and I never allow it to go below or above my Betta likes it that way. The black moor goldfish is so cute but hes a colder water fish and would not do well in my heated tank.

a 10 gallon is too small for a gold fish anyway :) you will need atleast a 20gallon for the fancy types and a 30 gallon for a comet/fast swimming gold fish). These sizes are to house one goldfish only.
The betta will attack it anyway because of the flowy tail.

you should stick to a fish that lives in the lower area of the tank... but really I wouldn't put any fish in a tank with your betta if you thonk he is aggressive to tank mates.

I'm hoping he won't attack these like he did the frogs but I do hesitate I do have a backup tank for them if needed though I was hoping they would help with keeping the tank nice and clean.

Small invertebrates. Gold fish are cold water Bettas are warm water.

I can not find java moss anywhere and I would really love some in my tank as well as one or two surface dwellers that are not duckweed that stuff drives me berserk I had it in my toads tank and it all died. Can anyone recommend it, or knows somewhere I can order it offline and insure live delivery.

Although tank mates are a nice addition, bettas are not social creatures and do not need 'friends'. Tank mates are more for you rather than him. :)
