I onced watched my betta dust off 21 RCS in less than an hour. RCS can't be kept with bettas, based on my experience. In a heavily planted tank you could keep guppys with RCS but it would only be a matter of time before the guppys found them and ate them. Also, RCS breed like crazy but no babies would be able to survive to adult hood with fish in the tank. I think the only fish that wouldn't bother with RCS are otos. With fish in the tank the RCS would spend all their time hiding. Most of the fun in keeping RCS (IMHO) is watching these cute little guys do their thing and with other fish in the tank you wouldn't really get the full enjoyment of a shrimp filled tank.

I actually think they'd be okay with guppies... The adults would be too large to mess with (as long as they had a place to hide while molting).. (I'd go with some java moss and guppy grass.)

They wouldn't do a whole lot, but I bet they'd survive.
