Ah, okay. I think I'd go with at least a 15 gallon, then because all other tetras are at least twice the size of neons.

Theres no other kind of fish that can live with a betta, other than tetras?

You could try guppies, but they'd probably have to be the non-fancy variety, due to the fact that fancy guppies kinda of look like male Bettas when it comes to their tails. I also have heard that Hatchetfish work well with Bettas, but they need a deeper tank.

Platies


Guppies


Corydoras catfish (schooling fish)


Black neon tetras


White clouds:


Although sucess has been reported with all the above fish, your best bet would probably be the corydora catfish. Other fish can be a hit or miss but bettas rarely have issues with cories or other peaceful bottom dwellers.

Congrats on your future purchase. One betta plus 1 or 2 shrimp max would be best. I wish Petco had these in stock when I purchased my 5 gallon marineland. Never knew these existed til I saw them months later.

How about Harlequin Rasboras? Small and non-aggresive and very pretty, IMO.

I have corydoras in with my betta and I've never had a problem since my betta hangs out near the surface and the cories like the sand substrate. I have albino ones but they come in other colors too.

ghost shrimp would be cool in there with the betta if you add plants for the shrimp to hide and crawl on

Since you are looking at tanks and other options: Aqueon has a ten gallon tank kit and so does Hagen. Both are supplied with tank, filter, complete hood and lighting. They are about $10.00-$15.00 (depending on where you purchase) more than the Petco Bookshelf 6.6 Gallon. Both of those kits are glass tanks. Just another option.

It all depends on what you are trying to achieve with your tank. This bookshelf tank has the one drawback for me that the acrylic scratches really really easy. It is not as nice as the other name brands that use a higher grade acrylic in their manufacturing. That being said i liked this tank because of it being long and shallow and was able to create a really nice environment with it.
