Is this okay?

I was wondering is this okay?

To have guppies in the tank while the breeding process happens?

I was ready about this that in thialand they put guppies in there to show the fry how to act in feeding and it helps in maturing at a young age?

Am i right?

This is the video it found it on:

I wouldn't do it. I would think that guppies would eat tiny betta fry.

Read the comments.. he even says that the guppies ate all the eggs.

Fry don't need to be taught how to eat. If provided with proper live food they will instinctively eat. It is only breeders who don't provide live foods that experience large die offs because the fry starved to death. IMO live food should be provided AT LEAST for the first two weeks, preferably for the first month, before introducing frozen/dried foods.
