Can bettas mix with other tropical semi-aggressive fish?

Here's what I currently remember about compatability.

Things I have heard are an absolute no-no with bettas:
gouramis, cichlids, sharks

Depends on the tank and the other fish:
tetras, danios, barbs, guppies

Often pretty good, depends on the betta's personality:
platies, kuhli loaches, corydoras catfish, non-aggressive shrimp, snails
I know I'm forgetting stuff, but I'm too tired to remember what I'm forgetting.

Yes but they can be completely passive but still be nippy. Some species of tropical fish see the long flowing bright tails on a male betta and can't help themselves to take a taste test nip.
