Oh another question!

The guppies seems like an okay idea, but as I read online, it says they nip fins :/ is this true of both genders, or just the males? In other words, will a female nip the long fins of my betta?

Also. Cherry Barbs. Are they ok? It says they're schooling fish and I'd need a minimum of 5 on wikipedia (ok, probs not the best source). But I could do 5 or 6 I suppose. And they're apparently peaceful... I could get all females. Is that ok? I just want female fish anyways. Comments on this? Thanks!

damn. that means females might still nip :( I want to come as close as possible to eliminating that possibility. My poor betta has had his fair share of fin problems.

EDIT: A couple websites are suggesting 20G for cherry barbs. :(
