its not usually recommended that you keep male guppies with bettas as the bettas are often threatened by the guppies fancy tails. imho i wouldnt keep a betta with any other fish other than bottom dwelling fish but many people have had sucess in doing so.
cories also prefer to be in shoals. 4-6 is a good number for a small tank, however if you had 4-6 then you would be best going for just one betta without any other fish perhaps to save you from overstocking
what you have in your tank is entirely up to you, but dont overstock. there are some fish that are just definite no nos when it comes to keeping them together however for the most part, its just a case of what works for an individual. fish, like us are individuals and dont always carry the traits of their breed and so will sometimes get on with other fish, or not get on as the case may be which is typically out of character for that breed. experiment, without doing anything too silly of course. we will try and keep you right when it comes to that. just make sure you are prepared, and have a solution if it doesnt work out like being able to take a fish back, or having another tank set up in case there are peoblems.
good luck :)
