I dont think so.... just my opinion, bettas can be aggressive fish, and I think you would need a bigger tank to add any other fish. (personally, I think 2 gallons is a little to small just for a betta, but it will suffice)

Bad idea. 2 gallon is just big enough for the Betta. Partly the reason why some Betta get along with other fish is because they are in larger tanks for all them to avoid each other.
I wouldn't do it unless you want to pay 40 cents to see dead fish.

I wouldn't do it. 2 gallons is awfully small for neons and a betta. Those neons are just going to end up dead... that's a waste of money in my opinion...40 cents a fish or not. You could use that little bit of pocket change on something else more useful.

I'm amazed at how cheap they are by the way...

doesnt matter how cheap the fish are.......in a 2 gallon tank the neons are gonna have a very stressed, miserable short life........upgrade to a 10 gallon if you want to try to put other fish in with your betta.........Anything smaller is not doing the fish any good

I thought the same thing you did (except our neons here are 1.99), so I put 3 neons in the 30 gallon tank with my Betta. He was fine until they got near his heater... then they were dead... literally. My Betta was also relativley calm. If he would do that in a 30 gallon, where each fish has 7+ gallons to himself, imagine what yours would do when he is having to share his two little gallons with someone else...

I agree with everyone that a 2 gallon is barely big enough for a betta much less any other fish. Bettas can and will eat neons.
