isn't this a community fish though?I thought they would all get along so guppies are out of the question I have 5 neon tetras in there and hes always chasing them around should I separate him?
 

Eienna

Do separate them. First of all, I believe those tetras need a school in order to not be aggressive...and if a fish can fit another in its mouth, at some point it will likely try to eat it.

I have spent days looking for the same tetra and somehow no one seems to have it can I mix in different tetras or bad idea?

The pictured fish is definitely a tetra, not a barb. Tetras need to school with their own kind or they can get nippy. I don't think that particular tetra would have eaten two guppies whole though, you should have found bodies. Is it possible they are hiding from him somewhere because he's nipping at them? Personally I would return that one and get more neons to help with the nipping problem.

If you're having trouble locating more, go to where you got the first one and ask if they can order more for you. You might have to use their latin name.

can bettas go into my community tank? currently there's 5 neon tetras 2 white fined tetras and 1 male guppy and female guppy that I can't seem to find

Sometimes they can, sometimes not. It depends on the individual betta - and NEVER put them with Gouramis or Paradise Fish.
