Fish for new tank - adding fish - Beta and other fish

Hi,

I a have new 20 gallon tank and a few questions.

I would like a male Beta (especially to rescue out of its sad little bowl in the store) but am reading so many conflicting view points on Betas with other fish.

I am considering 1 male Beta, 6 neon tetras, 3 cory catfish, 3 mollies. I wanted fan tail guppies, but have learned guppies are not a good choice with a Beta

  1. Does this sound like a good group that should get along?

  2. I am thinking of adding catfish first - can I do 3 to start? Followed by mollies, after a wait add tetras, and finally the Beta. Is this is best order?

Your feedback and insights are greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Regina
