One betta (either male or female) might be a nice centerpiece fish that *should* go well with what you describe there. Only thing I would suggest is, if you go that route, add the other fish to the...

The deep red ones are the females. The ones that are clearer with just some red flecks are the males. In general the males will be more active, and this will be even more true if there are females...

Golden Wonders are beautiful killies, very hardy, an excellent first species of killifish to own. They are also, in general, good citizens in a community fish tank.
