Hi and Welcome to AA!

The people at the Fish Store usually have no idea what they are doing. They just want to sell you more fish. Before buying anymore fish I would first buy a good test kit. The API Master Freshwater kit is the most accurate.

How long did you have this tank running before adding your current stock?

How long has the tank been running?

I would rehome them. It will open up the stock options immensely. Guppies are a huge hit with kids. My daughter (3) loves them. You could even rehome the tetras you have and replace them with neons. One thing that will have to be addressed is the Betta. They don't like anything with flowing or colorful tails so guppies couldn't go in the same tank.
