Thanks ppls. Asked around in regards to the guppies but got such a mixed response I decided to give it a go. Some ppl said they will be fine, others said they will fight and just as many said it depends on your bettas temperament. Any sign of aggression and they will be seperated but for now all is still happy. Thanks PewPewPew will try the cup... was even thinking of holding him in a net just in the water while the others eat. See how it goes.
Yes Pete the waffle is on the way out... new aquatic plants will be coming soon.
There is another Cory on the way to raise numbers to 3, probably get him when the plants come in.
Thanks for your comments
