Researching fish

Ok so I have been researching fish to put into my community tank (still under going fish less cycle at the moment) I think I may have my list so here goes. Let me know if you think fish wont go together and why.

Guppies male and female I know it a 3:1 ratio
Blue Dwarf gourmi (better in pairs I have been told)
Cardinal tetras (minimum of six)
Corydoras catfish (better in pairs??)

Only one I'm not sure on cause sites/books say different is a betta or fighting fish. I really wanted one of these, then was told could nip guppies, but then read they are ok with other fish but not 2 male betas together without female. I only wanted the one???

What sized tank are we talking about
Cory cats are best in small groups (5-6 should be find)
And i would not recommend a beta in a community tank. Some betas are cool but you may go through a dozen betas to find a "nice" one

Hi, male DG are best by there self unless in a 55+ tank, I would really keep a male beta by there self also, there terpment can be every where. Cory's like larger schools with 6 at min. There are serval other species that could work so far in that setup also, like neon an flame tetras

+1 on all the tips

I have a male betta in a 55 gallon community tank with an angel, everything's going great, but it's a hit & miss subject

Believe it or not my father has 3 male bettas in a 55 with no problems. So I guess they're a crap shoot like tiger barbs.
