They are pretty peaceful, should be fine for a betta, as long as you have a good school of 6+.
Might wanna look into the water hardness though, most tetra don't do too well in it.

Diamonds are okay in medium hard water, but not harder than 12 dGH. As for temperament, I haven't read anything that says they are especially nippy, but it is a good idea to keep a group of more than 6 as 6 is the bare minimum. Here is some more information: Diamond Tetra (Moenkhausia pittieri) Profile
