I might go platies ... unsure. They look pretty similar to girl bettas come to think of it (a tad smaller though I think?) I'd really like some livebearers as a source of live food for my bettas. Sorry if that sounds cruel.
I've had 2 platie girls and a guy for a week in "new fish QT" and already got a small batch of fry. Trust me, if you get a guy and a girl, you will definitely have a steady source of live food.
And all I can say for sure is definitely no danios. They're too hyper. I tried a few bettas in with my danios and each one did poorly. The females got stripey (my teal girl looked like a danio herself) and my male just headbutted any danio that passed by him. Which they did frequently because they're not too bright and never tried to avoid him.
