What kind of species can go with betta in community tanks?

Is there another choice for a good centrepice fish, keep in mind that our water is slightly alkaline.

I have kept a Betta with Guppies, he did show off to them at first but he's alright with them now. I haven't known him to actually attack them or anything.
I have kept Bettas in pH 8 and they're fine. You could have some sort of Gourami, but never keep Bettas and Gourami together.

As stupid as this might sound, you can tell how aggressive your betta will be when you buy him. I have learned to buy the betta on the OUTSIDE of the group of cups at the store....and try to get one that has only been in the store a few days.

I have been able to keep betta's and angelfish together with NO ISSUES which if you ask any fishy person, will usually tell you betta's and Angels don't MIX.

Angels, at least in my exp are not aggressive fish unless provoked...and if you can get a betta that isnt aggressive then you can mix them.
