Honestly, I'd say get rid of the platy, but I'd worry about the betta nipping the guppy's fins. If you keep the platy, you may wanna trade around some so you have one male and a handful of females. They're quick so they should be okay with the beta if she's proven to be somewhat mild mannered. With those it is really trial and error. No matter which you keep, you should keep a handful of that kind, so they have something to school with.
Man that gravel must be tough to keep in order!
My females are just plain guppies that my lfs got from a breeder... so they're basically the rejects (haha). They barely have any color in them.. nothing that would attract my betta's attention. That yellow play would much
rather hang with the guppies and betta... he gets picked on by my other two male platies
I'll probably rehome one female guppy and two male platies. Just because my red wag platy is SO mean to my yellow one.. If he stresses from lack of kin, I'll give him to my friend as well :]
I have seen mild aggression from my female betta. She'll stare down a fish and chase them for a second or two.. but that's all. I hope it doesn't turn in to something big ._."
