    2 male betas, a school of about 25 guppies and a 40 galon planted tank.

    Would the betas be ok in that size tank together qoth the guppies?

    Not male bettas. There is a very very small chance that they might but i wouldn't risk it. I have never kept males together so i cannot say yes or no but I would suggest you just get female bettas

    Having 2 males in the same tank is a gamble as is just 2 girls. I have 3 males and 16 girls in a 55 gallon. Its possible but not recommended. Personally I would just do 1 and not have that worry.

    In a 40 gallon I would still question two females together. In a 400 gallon you would be fine.

    Two
    Two female would be fine. They might fight but normally 2 females will be fine in a 40 gal in my experience.

    I don't know. O couldn't get 3 girls to play nice even in a 75. 5-7 is the recommended minimum.

    I would rather not risk it and leave it to one betta.

    I wouldn't risk it, and I agree that even with females you need a decent sized group for it to work. Usually.
