I immediately disagreed with the bettas till I read why. Ive only ever had 1 betta that wasn't in a community tank, and Ive had them with guppies and tetras without a problem but I probably wouldn't risk it again with guppies. And the only tetras ive seen bother another is with emperor tetras and only with themselves.

This article is a pretty good warning though.

I have always felt that tiger barbs were more fin nippers then tetras. Surprised not to see them on the list. Botia loaches as well.

Very informative article. Bettas CAN sometimes do ok in a community tank, depending on their personality but they are solitary fish and IMO, are happier living by themselves.
