you can, you just have to make sure the fish you have with a betta dont nip at his fins.

I don't think you can put bettas with angelfish. Bettas shouldn't be put with fish that have long, flashy fins.

Too many fish in such a small tank...
Neons are best in a school of 6, cories like to shoal together in a group.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
