Oooo I like that guppy. Think the betta will rip it to shreds?

Indeed it will. Either your Betta's fins will be nipped or the guppy fins might be nipped or the guppy might be killed.

Tank buddies for male bettas can't have long flashy tails, or the Betta will think its another male Betta.

Guppies and bettas is a real no no! My mum made that mistake once and her poor guppies were hounded to death! She had to re home them in the end :(

I didn't read where this would be a tank with Bettas... in that case Guppies and Danios are out sadly. You're pretty limited with tank mates with such an aggressive breed of fish such as Bettas :(

Actually, some people keep guppies and bettas together very successfully. I'm not saying it's a good idea for anyone to try, but with a docile enough betta it is possible.

However, I'd stick to safer fish. If you like guppies, have a look at Endlers Livebearers as an alternative.

I think trying guppies and bettas together might be something for the more experienced fish keeper who has plenty of time to keep an eye on things and who is prepared to keep a spare tank. I wouldn't do it.
