How large is your tank and how is it setup?
Betas are hardly ever aggressive with any other fish except Betas. Typically females can be kept together, but males should be kept separate. Personally, I've never had a problem keeping a single male and a or multiple females in the same tank, but I have heard of this not working for some, so it should be done with caution.
The biggest issue with betas is people often keep them in small containers or unfiltered bowls and tanks. Not getting into the discussion on whether this is humane long term, but most other fish cannot survive like this long term. Betas have a different respiratory system than normal fish, it's called a labyrinth organ, and it allows them to directly breath air. They are also able to handle temperature swings much better than most other tropical fish.
Anyway, if you can update and describe how your tank is setup, we can more appropriately answer the question with specifics.
