Conures flock with other species in the wild. Meyers do not. I'd be more worried that Belle would want to hurt other birds than that a conure would want to hurt Belle, but you never know how any two birds will react to one another, even two birds of opposite sex of the same species.
Roni, my senegal, has never been allowed to come into physical contact with any of my other birds because I have always believed she would hurt them. Nevertheless, her life is enriched by having the other birds in the home. They interact with one another from afar, and she loves to imitate everyone else. I am seriously considering allowing Roni and Ashlynn, my baby grey, to interact, because they don't seem to be the least bit antagonistic toward one another, and whenever Ashlynn flies over while I'm playing with Roni, Roni doesn't even get upset. However, I'll be right there to intervene.
My particular conure and senegal do not like one another, but they don't fight.
