Guppies are okay when kept with females, and can be kept with males too depending on the male's demeanor and how fancy the guppies are. I have four guppies with my male betta and they are fine.

I put two guppy males in with one of my gentlest boys... they were tail-less and dead within 10 hours.

I had one tiger-spot with vertical inch of tail with the girls and nobody ever nipped at him.

:(

I started with two boys and four girl guppies. My two males were also killed quickly. Only the girls were left alone. The boy guppies were very pretty though, so that is probably why the male attacked them.

Did I forget to say "money" is compatible with a 20g sorority?

Get a back-up filter and get the bio in it running too. Most are incredibly reliable but $10.00 at walmart to save $40.00 of fish and to avoid thirty gallons of water changing per day...

Watch the intakes, sponge em over or something.

Guess it varies. I have a male fancy guppy in mine, bright red gorgeous tail. All 5 of my female betta's ignore him.

Female bettas are generally okay to have with guppies. It is the males that are iffy lol.
