    If I were you I'd remove 2 of the guppies from your stock list, then you're good. Large water changes will be required though.

    Should I leave out the guppies all together? Or would upgrading to an aquaclear 110 instead of 70 mean less water changes?

    If you remove the guppies altogether it will lessen water changes. It will also mean that you can have a much lower pH, which Is good for your other fish.

    I’m trying to decide what to do with a 20 gallon high so maybe do the guppies in that tank with cories and one of my bettas? The guy at the fish store said the betta would be fine with very colorful purple guppies but I don’t know about that one.

    A 20 high is no good for cories, I would just put the guppies there.

    If all your bettas are in heated, filtered 5 Gallon tanks I would just leave them be.

    Ok. The guy at the fish store said 4 peppered cories were fine in a 10 (which I didn’t agree with) so I thought the 20 would work. Now I know better. Thank you.

    And yes the bettas are in 5.5 heated and filtered tanks.

    pygmy cories would be better. I have a few with my betta in a 10g

    Pygmies are very expensive for their size at my lfs! 7 dollars a piece!
