I've been unsure whether to do a sorority or community tank lately. I've also gotten this recent obsession with guppies. Then I thought: Why not both?
But than I realized the guppies would be torn apart by what I'd imagine a good description to be a pack of wolves hunting its prey
But than I just checked the aqua advisor stocking website and with 5 female bettas and 2 guppies, if I had no filter, I'd be 99% stocked. But of course, I am going to have a filter, a biowheel one, so that makes the rates go a bit down. The AQ advisor had no warnings about guppies with female Bettas, even though it prohibits Bettas and corycats.
So, would a sorority of 5 bettas with 2 male guppies work? Or would the male guppies die? Or, could any other fish go into the tank instead?
