Bettas with Guppy fry and guppies? (ASAP)
I heard from a friend that it was ok to keep a betta fish with 3 guppies and their fry. Is this true. I was planning on taking back a broken tank I got and need a place for the betta. Please Reply ASAP
You can put them in there - just don't be surprised if the betta does a little population control on the fry (depending on their age/size)
This is not a good match long-term. Male guppy are brightly coloured, and this is documented as being like waving a red flag in front of a bull. Betta frequently attack such fish.
The guppy may decide to nip the flowing fins of Betta.
Betta are not community fish, and will always be better on their own in a suitable aquarium. But in an emergency, you might get by.
