Question Harlequin Rasbora + Betta Splendens

Is there any considerations that are needed concerning the keeping of these two fishes together? I have a 30 gallon "tall" tank. I have a male crowntail named Red in there. He is extremely calm. Never attacks the 15+ guppies, or the 3 neon tetras (getting more), or the rosey red minnow. I want to get 5 Harlequin Rasboras so as to have a cute little school. any thoughts?

I am the Emeraldmaster, hear me roar... *meow*

And after I roar at you, may I entice you to look at me fishies! http://www.bettafish.com/members/emeraldmaster-albums.html

Rosy red minnows aren't those cold water outer than that sounds great.

I agree.....you're pretty much at full capacity there, especially if you've got actively breeding guppies. Even the 2-3 Neons you need to build up a proper school might really be pushing things over the edge. Might want to find homes for a bunch of those guppies if you want to add in more fish....
