Can I put a female betta in my comunity?

I have a community of guppies and zebra danios and glofish and I want platys. I was wondering if I can put a female betta in there becuase I saw a preety one today at petsmart and was wondering if I can go back tommrow and get her to put in the community and I would get all she needs.

I think it should be OK. Keep an eye on the danios though - they're not ideal tank buddies for bettas.

Do you have plenty of plants and hiding spots for the female? She might want to get away and hide occasionally if the other fish get nippy, and vice versa.

That's kinda neat, I have never heard of those before.

Great information on keeping female Betta fish.
Great information on choosing tank mates for Betta fish.
Great information on male Betta fish care.
