The male betta doesn't bother the guppies? They look so much like female bettas I would think they wouldn't get along. Did you have any problems when you put them together?

I wonder about this too, I was always under the impression that fancy guppies were a big no-no because they're very easily mistaken for a fellow betta with their bright colors and long fins. I suppose the wild type could work and some bettas might ignore even the fancies, but it honestly goes against everything I've ever heard. I love fancy guppies though, some of them are definitely bordering on show quality betta levels of beauty imo!

I've had fancy guppies with male and female bettas with absolutely no problems. Brightly colored and all. :)

I have had tequila sunrise delta guppy males in a 10 gallon with my sorority and i had no problems until i had to leave for 2 weeks to come back and i was missing a guppy so i guessed the females ate him.

America (f, HM), Spirit (m, DBLT), Rescue (f, VT), Missile (m, HM), Purnurple (m, HMPK), Dragon (m, VT), platies, mollies, sorority tank of 21 females, AND lots of guppies.
