Thumbs up what fish are compatible with bettas

are any of these OK?
1. zebra dainos
2.fantail goldfish
3.cardinal tetra
4.jumbo neon tetra

I want fish that will not harm my betta (or vice versa) and can live with only a few plants. I will have pictures of my betta's tank in a bit. I am planning on getting some fake plants for it, too.

Too fast and will stress a betta out; danios are super active

2.fantail goldfish
Cold water fish, need temps around 72-74 and also will grow to be 8-12" long

3.cardinal tetra
A school of these will work just fine, keep an eye out for any fin nipping

4.jumbo neon tetra
A school of these will work too but some people have had issues with fin nipping or with the betta taking out the tetras

Also suitable are Harlequin rasboras, corydoras catfish, and otocinclus catfish; some people have also had success with guppies but it depends on the betta. And the usual assortment of mystery snails and shrimp.

Yeah, sorry about the danios and the goldfish. Maybe if you had a 20 L and lots of hiding spots for the betta, you could keep the danios with him, but the goldfish would get sick and die quickly in the warm waters that a betta needs. A school of cardinals is really a beautiful sight.
