What genders are these fish? Guppies will not work. Male guppies have elegant fins and with almost similar color patterns and finnage, the betta is likely to harass them thiking they are his rivals. The livebearers mentioned are too prolific and a betta alone and the livebearers themselves may not be able to eliminate as many fry as possible to avoid overcrowding.

Only otos will work. The rest need plenty of swimming space. Unless you have enough algae supply, do not get the otos.

May I know your overall stocking lists and tank sizes? This flow of posts is getting confusing.

Putting all those fish in wouldn't be okay.

The congo tetras are fairly large, get up to 3 inches and need to be in groups of at least 6. The bleeding heart tetras also need to be in groups of at least 6. The scissor tail rasbora can get fairly large too, up to 4 inches and need a much bigger tank with open swimming area. A pair of ottos would be okay in a 10 gallon.

I'd say out of those you have really only one option that would work in the long run, a pair of ottos. If your tank was larger you'd have a lot more options.

Small fish like tetras and rasboras do best when they have a good amount of swimming room so they can dart around.

Look, either upgrade your tank size, or deal with the fact that you can't have what you want in a 10 gallon - unless you want many dead fish to deal with.

With bettas, harlequin rasboras, cardinal tetras and flame tetras are good options. Otos and cories are okay but unless you have enough algae supply, otos should not be bought.
