As long as you don't get fancy guppies, you should be fine if you have a male. If you get a female bettta though, fancy guppies are fine. :)

What's the difference between 'fancy' guppies and 'regular' guppies?

Fancy guppies have long, fancy tails (hence the name) and male bettas will get aggressive upon seeing the bright colors and long tails (like a betta). They can't swim fast enough away if he tries to attack or nip.

Guppies. Their bodies are more streamlined and can swim away faster, males won't get offended too.

The second picture is an endler... not a guppy :P But Fancy guppies have larger tails and brighter colors. A regular guppy isnt fancy looking at all.

I tried it...I slowly put my betta in the 29 gallon yesterday...so far so good...They're just normal yellow guppies. Not fancy finned. They seem to all be getting along so far..I am keeping an eye on them though.My betta looks excited with all the swimming room. haha

They're all still alive. Unfortunately, I am battling a mild case of ICK in this tank at the moment though......
But my betta hasn't hurt any of the guppies or platys...and they haven't hurt him.
