I have kept them with swords, mollies and platys. I don't know why they wouldn't be OK with rasboras and similar medium sized tetras, I just haven't tried them yet.

They should be fine with just about any bottom dweller, not just the algae eaters, as long as it's not too flashy. Corys, otos, loaches, etc.

Bettas gets along with almost any fish that does not have long fins and is not to "flashy."

The smaller Loaches are Chain loaches, Yoyo loahes, and Kuhlii loaches.

Only the kuhlis are compatible with bettas. The rest mentioned will rip their fins.

I haven't tried the Vaillantella but I don't see them capable of attacking bettas.

Acanthopsis choiohynchus
Pangio anguillaris
Pangio cuneovirgata
Pangio doriae
Pangio fasciatus
Pangio kuhlii
Pangio mariarum
Pangio malayana
Pangio muraeniformis
Pangio myersi
Pangio oblonga
Pangio pangia
Pangio piperata
Pangio semicincta
Pangio shelfordi
Vaillantella cinnamomea
Vaillantella maaasi
