I generally acclimate the fish and let the betta see them. Then I rearrange everything in the tank and release them all together so there isn't any territorial issues. It's worked every time for me.

When I added my catfish, I let them float (of course) to get used to the water temperature. Since they were floating, my betta was already in the aq and he went ahead and kept swimming around their bag. He did flare once, but never tried to attack them, and now he loves them :) . Just watch how your betta acts towards them while they're in the baggy.
