Well, how many guppies do you have in the tank as of right now?

You could do a ADF, but you need to give it plenty of places to hide as a refuge from the other fish.

You could try it depending on the number of guppies, but you'd need 2 as they like companionship and be prepared to take them out if they are being out competed for food or are being attacked, it's common for fish to nip ADF toes off

Yes, thats also something I have experienced.

I wanted to do a 10g Betta and ADF Community. But I don't think I want to now, because bettas can be very mean to the frogs.

Although my betta never seems to ever flare, and didn't have problems with my ADF's

It seems you have some stocking issues as well, if you'd like to discuss them

I wouldn't add any with the fish you have. ADFs won't compete well for food against the more active fish, as the ADFs have poor eyesight. They may also attack fish.

Poor little guys.

They don't do well against the other fish in trying to get food.

Nope, ADF's wouldn't try to eat them.

They might try to pester them in some way.

They might mistake them for food and bite them. If they're small enough to fit in their mouths and they bite them, then yes, they may eat them.

I would be more worried about the guppies eating the ADF, but it's possible for the ADF to mistakenly nip the guppies as well.
