Mollies bad with bettas?



I keep forgetting to ask about this but when I went to get my new little girl she was in a tank with bettas, mollies, and guppies. About 5 mollies were chasing one of the bettas around the tank for at least 5 minutes before I left. Are mollies a no no when it comes to mixing with bettas?

Yeh I'd agree, I put a male betta in with a yellow molly (I know your talking about a female) but he chased the molly. My 5 females are in the same tank with 3 guppies & they are getting along fine, no nipping of anyones tails, they seem to not even notice each other & eat from the surface all together friendly....not sure about a molly?

Do you have male or female guppies with your girls? I was hoping to get some male fancy guppies to go with them. I love the colors they come in!

i definately wouldnt recommend male guppies in with them, they could think their male bettas because of their finnage and WILL nip them which could lead to illnesses

I never had a problem with my Dalmation molly + Male betta, but then with my females she gets a bit nippy at times.

What about the little frogs? Are they a good pairing? I'd like to get Goldy a buddy soon.
