I'd suggest cycling the tank first before you add anything. This thread is very detailed and should hopefully help you.
I'd suggest looking into Cyprinids and Atherinids section as you get plenty of choices. Here are a few I can suggest:
Bottom: Bumblebee gobies (not all are brackish water species), Garra, Siamese algae eater, hara hara catfish, corydoras
Middle: Rasboras, barbs (research further on this one), tetras
Surface: Bettas, gouramis, danios, some rasboras such as Rasbora wilpita.
A list of what you like will be nice so we can trim them down to erase any discrepancies.:)
As for bettas and danios kept together, it's basically luck. The danios may not nip him but there is always the chance they will. Besides, these are boisterous eaters and can outcompete the betta for food.
