Bettas and Guppies?
I had three guppies in my five gallon tank, but two of them passed away, and now I am tasked with getting new tankmates for my remaining guppy. He is a small, platinum guppy fish, who is a little shy around people and hides for most of the day. Originally, my plan was just to get two new guppies and introduce them to the tank, but I'm interested in possibly getting a female betta fish to live with a few guppies. Cockatiel, my current guppy, does not have the lengthy fins, and has a rather short round tail, and if I were to get a female betta, I would choose other guppies with similar tails since I have read that bettas don't like the longer tail fins on other fish. I have plenty of space to hide in my tank. I would like to get a small, female, half moon betta to live with my guppies, and I'm wondering if that would be feasible, or if I should stick to guppies. I have had bettas in the past and I really loved them, but I'm seeing mixed results when I search for betta/guppy compatability.
