Some fish go geat with them but then some dont. if you realy want to put him in i would go with platys , black mollies and female bettas. do not put guppys as they have bright colored tails witch may start fights. theres a lot of fish you can put in there if u got a two females youy should be fine.

i had my betta in a one gallon tank for over a year, and then i recently got a 10 gallon and it had some swordtails and platys and danios, and i transferred him over there...he didnt like it very much and some of my fish died as a result...he would probably be happiest by himself honestly...they are easy keepers...

Bettas are not meant to get along with guppies. Let alone the male guppies' bright colorful tails which would become a magnet to their death.

Bettas will not tolerate any fish which he considers as his rival especially when that fish has brighter and more colorful fins.

Neons should be ok but you can't buy them until the tank matures by 6 months. Although 4 months may seem ok.

I agree with what girlofgod said. I still have a betta in a 2.6 litre vase, and he is well over 3 years old. At one point I put him in my 25 gallon aquarium with black skirt tetras and some neons. He did not bother the other fish, and they left him alone, but he didn't look 'happy' in there; he tended to hide in the bottom of the tank, under a log with the pleco. So I put him back in his little container by himself, and he is still going strong.

1 U.S. gallon = approximately 3.78 liters
So a 30 liter tank is approximately 8 gallons
