beta and bichir

hey everybody. so my sister has got a pretty old betta(around 4 years) and she usually keeps it in a crappy fish bowl. but she left for germany yesterday for three weeks and i've been thinking about moving it into my 30 gal while she's away. the problem is that i'm not sure if it would get alnog with the tank's inhabitants.

right now i've got:
15 feeder guppies
1 golden dojo loach(2.5in)
1 normal dojo loach(4.5in)
1 armoured bichir(polypterous delhezi)2.5in

i'm mainly worried about how it would get along with the bichir. i really like my bichir and wouldn't want it to get hurt. and at the same tiime i don't wanna kill my sisters fish while she's gone. i gues i'm more worried about the beta but just wondering what everybody else thinks.

(ps-yes i know how big the bichir will get, i'm just growing him out for now)

I don't know about the other fish, but I know bettas don't get along with the guppies...but then again the betta may be docile enough to live with them....I couldn't really say, sorry
