Welcome! Guppies may nip at your fighter's fins, my uncle had a Red Tail it killed everything else in the tank :s

Welcome to AA!

1. For awhile.
2. Yes, but not a common pleco for the longterm. They get 18"+.
3. Yes, but not for the longterm. They get large!

I'd recommend choosing between a betta ("fighter") or guppies. They do not coexist well at all.

RTS are cool fish, but they do tend to get nippy and territorial as they mature. Rainbow sharks look very similar, but are a bit more chill IME.

Well.. I just got a Red Tailed Shark, which is a lovely little guy. Although I got him from a friend whom was giving her tank and fish away I could trust them to tell me the truth about him and he's never hurt another fish even ones that he's three times bigger than. It just depends how aggressive they are, although I wouldn't risk getting one from a shop
