Yeah, like i've had the betta and 2 gupies in the 10G together since last night, and my betta hasn't even flared at them once.:O? There were even a few moments when the guppies would go up against the bottle the betta is in and they'd just stare at each other, but not in an aggressive way. I'm worried though because the guppies are still small, maybe only like 3/4 of an inch so far so i don't wanna take a change with the betta thinking they're a nice treat:O But anyways, how often do they have it?

Assuming you mean guppies and glowlights, probably OK. I just never mix livebearers and soft water fish, it's my thing.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

I see.. Well i guess i might give it a shot mixing the guppies and glowlights. 6 Glowlights and 2 guppies for now, and if everythign seems fine and theres no fighting/stress, i may add a 3rd guppy. Not gonna take a chance with the betta, i'll keep him in his 5.5 gallon and maybe some ghost shrimp. Thanks alot byron:D those fish profiles are a huge help!
