To start of with you will have to cycle the new tank first before you even think of putting fish into it.
As you have one tank set up already can I assume you know how to cycle a tank?
Personally I think Danios will be to fast for the Betta they prefer a quiet tank.

When I had the Betta in my 45lt tank I had Cardinal Tetras they get along extremely well. Cardinals will cost you more but they are worth the extra money as they are always a healthy and stronger fish.
I also had Khuli Loaches they are excellent food cleaners they can get into spots no other fish can

Have a look in [link=My Profile] http://www.fishprofiles.com/forums/member.aspx?id=1935[/link] for my tank info

Near enough is not good enough, therefore good enough is not near enough, and only your best will do.

to cycle your tank you should purchase some test kit for atleast ammonia, and nitrite/nitrate.if u already have a tank up and running then u can add a little water from the tank to "kick "start the cycle with beneficial bacteria

Maybe your thinking of orange glofish? I dont know how well they get along with bettas. Kieths probably right about them being to fast for the betta though. Google Orange glofish and see if you recognize the pictures. Hope that helped!

The true test of character is not how much we know how to do, but how we behave when we dont know what to do.

Could even be glolite tetras.

I've heard of glolite danios before, and apparently there are not dyed or GM, but I can't find the species anywhere, so perhaps it was a misunderstanding

My thought for this is white cloud mountain minnows, although they might not exactly be actually orange...

Callatya, you're thinking Danio choprai. They are one of the most beautiful danios IMO, although Danio margaritatus is my favorite for now.

I was thinking glofish as well, since they're technically danios. If so, they're no different from regular zebra danios as far as behaviour, they just look different. We just started carrying them at the store I work at, they're pretty cool little guys. They come in orange, green, and red (although I think it looks much more pink). Even better if you can get some type of black light over them.
