bettas and guppys

i wanna try to redo an old 10 gal. freshwater tank i had a long time ago. i replaced old parts, cleaned throughly and all.

what i want to know is if you may put bettas and guppy fish together. i know bettas can be in a community aquarium with other peaceful fish that won't nip at its fins, but a guppy has a long tail fin. will they fight? i think the betta will go crazy, but i need your opinion. thanks!

every betta is different but theres a very high chance that your betta will kill your male guppies as they will see the guppy as a threat with its fancy tail. basically, bettas dont like anything potentially fancier than them
