No you can't have the male and the female in the same tank unless you have a divider.

OK sorry I misread, then yes you can have him in there. The endlers are adults?

As long as the BN is bigger than the betta's mouth it will be fine. I have a few smaller but not tiny BN plecos in with my betta. The endlers will be fine, guppies are not always good with bettas but endlers don't usually have the long flowy tails guppies do.

Yeah....I currently have one of my male bettas in a 5 gallon with four hybrid endlers. At first I think the male betta was confused, but when he figured out they were a little too big for his mouth he left them alone. Occasionally, I will see him flare at them. It's pretty funny in fact because they aren't even an inch long and he gets a puffy with them. I would say you will be fine and he will be happy in the 5 gallon.
