Like I said you could try some of the dwarf or pygmy corys but only in a group of at least 3. I think 4 or 5 would be good with a betta just be prepared to move them or rehome them incase the betta decides they might taste good.

I do not consider an 8g tank suitable for anything but one of the dwarf species when it comes to corys. Corydoras pygmaeus, C. habrosus, or C. hastatus can be kept in a group of 6+ in a 8g. These fish are shoaling fish which means they must be in a group to be less stressed and thus healthier.

If you care to check the profiles of the Corydoras species [second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top] you will note the recommended minimum tank size is 15/20g which is a 24-inch length tank for all of the non-dwarf species. A minimum of five of whichever species is preferable; if two or more species are included, a minimum of 3 of each species. Adequate conditions are more likely to result in healthier fish.
