Question Guppies with male bettas

I really miss my guppies and my current setup is a 29 divided into 3 for 3 male bettas. I was wondering if I could add fancy guppies (mainly male). I know generally it is said they shouldn't be put together, but I've had male bettas with fancy guppies before without a problem, I was just wondering if anyone has had a bad experience with this mix. Thanks.

As you may already know it really depends on the betta’s temperament. Many people I know have had bettas with guppies and have experienced no problems at all, I too have had a male betta with fancy guppies and he showed no signs of aggressiveness. If you want to try guppies with a betta than I would suggest you watch him vigilantly, just remember that they can turn when you least expect them

Good Luck

I had my Cassanova with my guppies for a while, and he never did anything. After a while, he even acted like a mini schooling fish! lol At first he was freaked out, he thought they moved too fast, but he soon got used it it. :)

When life throws you lemons throw them back!
