If I got a corydora, how many would I need? Is it ok to only have one?

Neon tetras can be rather sensitive to a lot of conditions in the first place, unrelated to living with the Betta fish. They could have died for a number of reasons, and they can be a bit tricky to keep. Somebody suggested cories, and those should be fine with your Betta. As far as critters go, you could also put a couple of ghost shrimp in there. Even if your Betta does eat the shrimp, they're like 2 bucks for a bag of ten so It's a fairly inexpensive addition, and you won't be losing too much money. Just be careful not to overcrowd the tank, as always.

Best of luck to you.

Fishyinpa has 6 cories in a 10 gallon, I think. They are schooling fish and do best in groups of 4-6 or more, depending on how much room you have.

I think it depends on the personality of your betta.

Someone else should be able to give you more info on African dwarf frogs. I don't know much about them.

When I look around online, some people say it's ok, some people say it's not.

I think it really depends on the personality of your betta. Some may even be afraid of a frog. Others may attack it. If you get one just keep an eye on them and see how they get along together. If Fishy isn't aggressive, he may just ignore the frog. I've heard the the frogs are fun to watch. Make sure that what you get is an African dwarf frog and not an African clawed frog. Clawed frogs will eat anything they can fit in their mouths.
