It can be to begin with but once you learn about stocking and different fishes needs it gets quite easy. That's why research is so important when deciding on fish.
Ok what about this.
Have 6-8 blood fin tetras (so add 2-4 more of the ones you have)
Keep the Betta.
Add a school of cories for the bottom or a school of kuhlis.
You could have a second tetra school of 6 neons or cardinals.
That way the Betta stays.

Welcome to the forum!

I had kribs and I personally don't like to see them in anything less than 30 gallons, especially in a community tank. The kribs will get really aggressive when spawning, which they will do roughly once per month.

Have a Plan B for the betta (siamese fighting fish) as quite often they do not do well in community tanks.

I agree that you need to get your own test kit. Pick up the API master kit. I wouldn't be surprised if the staff at your store do not know how to correctly do readings on your water. It's happened to many of us.

Many bettas are not community fish. I personally would not put platies with bettas.

Sure you can try it really depends on the betta and it's temperament. I have mine in a community and he does fine.
