    bettas don't normally do well in a community tank. You can do it, but not the best. Look into some of the wild betta species which do better in community tanks. Betta splendens is the "pet store" betta that comes in many different morphs and colors. Look for other species on aquabid, which will do better in your set up. many of these wild betta species can be kept together in shoals because they weren't bred for aggression unlike betta splendens.

    If you want a betta, you are seriously limiting your options.
    Like betta + some snails.

    If you really want a betta, I'd suggest getting a 5 gallon (it and its equipment shouldn't put you out more than $75 max) and giving him his own little tank. Then you have massive stocking varieties for the 38gal.
