Anyone successfully let 2 Betta fish stay together peacefully in community tank ?
I have 2 male betta in my 3 feet. The tank is heavily planted with about 100 other small fishes, inverts and 4 discus. There is some small flare up and chase, but the 2 male bettas are still alive and kicking.

If the tank is big enough and have enough hidding spots, male betta can stay together.

I dont see why not. Betta will not see male guppies as other betta. (But betta will chase small german blue ram. Some how they resemble betta in their eyes.)

Generally adult and even baby guppies are also too fast for male betta to catch and or eat. So they are compatible.

If the damage is not too deep, fish can usually grow back their fins.
