If the tank has recently been "Re-done" as you say, I would let the tank mature for a few month's before I added anything to it in the way of fishes.(let biological filter mature)
Fishes instinct's, rather than any human qualities we may try to attach to them such as personality,,is/ should be, expectation.
This is reason why most ,do not keep Betta's in community type tank's (seldom work's).

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

Bettas are kind of like adopting a dog from an animal rescue. They can be good pets and they can be nightmares, but if you're prepared and patient, you can have a good and happy pet on your hands.
