Okay what do guppies have to do with a betta?

Guppies are a completely different breed of fish.

And if you are looking to breed Bettas, not knowing the gender means you definantly have no idea what it takes to breed them, it's very hard and near impossible (I've tried with no success, then decided it was way to big a commitment).

im also unsure about betta and guppy link? do you want to mix them because it isint a great idea, as male betta have been known to attack guppies because their fins make them think its another male betta. a male betta usually has longer fins than a female, but some males can have shorter fins , as some females can have longer fins

guppies are nippers aswell and should not be put with a a betta cuz of its long fins.

mixing bettas depends on the fish's personality. groups of females can be kept together but females can still be aggressive towards one another, once someone said they kept two males together (do not do this)

I've heard that two male bettas have been kept in a big (like 10g) tank, but I still wouldn't try it. It would be an experiment that is not worth having a dead fishie over.

In general you can tell if it is a...
Male betta: Long, pretty fins
or a...
Female betta: Short fins. Some of them have rather bright fins, but in my experience, most females have either grey, black, dark red, or whitish (like, pearl or opal-like) fins.

Er...oookaaay.
Well, I'm glad they found out what it was - wouldn't want any mishaps because of not knowing! (i.e., putting a female in!)
