Guppies male and female I know it a 3:1 ratio
Blue Dwarf gourmi (better in pairs I have been told)
Cardinal tetras (minimum of six)
Corydoras catfish (better in pairs??)
Only one I'm not sure on cause sites/books say different is a betta or fighting fish. I really wanted one of these, then was told could nip guppies, but then read they are ok with other fish but not 2 male betas together without female. I only wanted the one???
What sized tank are we talking about
Cory cats are best in small groups (5-6 should be find)
And i would not recommend a beta in a community tank. Some betas are cool but you may go through a dozen betas to find a "nice" one
