Wondering if it would be okay to keep some male guppies in my 29g sorority tank? I'd really like some. It would be fine bioload aspect, but wondering about betta aggression?

It's probably just not a good idea. It might be possible, but I think you're asking for trouble. How many female bettas are in the sorority?

I'm doing this in my 29. Every now and then i find a guppy skeleton. One can only speculate on what is happening at night. While no proof i suspect it is the betta as they like to sit still until .... and guppies are ever so trusting.

That's sad. They are fine with the neon tetras

They might be ok with female guppies. They wouldn't hassle them like the males and are generally more peaceful. And you can get some really pretty ones (look up dumbo ear guppies) and lots of colors. They add a lot of activity to all levels. And our bettas like to hunt any fry that might come with a girl that is already pregnant
