Question Multiple females

I currently have my first female (I've had males before, and have 1 right now) and she is adorable and much more fascinating than I expected (i know it sounds not nice) so I'm looking into getting a larger tank and putting more females together. Some tips and advice for going about this would be great. I think I would be looking at a 5.5 gallon tank, i don't really have the space for a 10 gallon. Thanks !

10 gallon is the best since females need their own territory

I don't think you can have more then one female in a 5.5, I'm pretty sure ten gal. is the smallest you should have(if you do get a ten gal. I'm pretty sure the limit of females issupposed to be like four or five)

in order to have multiple females you need a 10 gallon tank because you have to have 4+ females. In a 5 gallon you can't have more than two fish and two females will fight like two males unless divided.

Feel free to message me any questions, I'll try to help the best I can!

I float a new female in a clear cup for 1 day to introduce them to each other. They all get alone well with each other.
