The thing with plecos is that, they have large bioloads. I never heard of dwarf frogs with shrimps and bettas.

But I think you can do certain shrimps with a betta.

Bettas are a hit and miss in a community tank. Just make sure to have a backup plan if it goes south.

I just love Cherry shrimp! Wish I could get some in my area. Crawfishes can be aggressive, known for eating smaller fish.

I have to say that's not a bad deal with the shrimp. 10 of my ghost shrimp cost me about $5.
If you really want to put a betta in the tank make sure its the last fish to go in.
This is what I do when betta shoppin-Bring a pencil and put up to the cup or tank. If the betta flares or is scared, pass on those. If they just sit there and ignore the pencil the more likely they are community compatible. I usually put them in a clear breeder box in the tank for the first couple weeks. Let him get used to the tank and other creatures. I did this with all five of my bettas and three of them were compatible, the other two destroyed anything in the tank.
Its not a guranatee that it will work, but three out of five ain't bad.

thats a very unique idea! I will definitely try that (now I have a reason to walk into my lfs again, hehe) i don't have a feeder box.. might look into that then, and try your method.. i love the king bettas.. they look absolutely stunning.
