Female and Male Betta in same Fish Tank?

Hi, I recently got a male betta fish and he is living in a 5 gallon fish tank. If I get a female betta fish can they co-exist with each other in that 5 gallon tank?

We just covered this in another thread. Absolutely not, unless you want a dead female.

No they cannot. Male and female Betta splendens should only ever be housed together for spawning purposes. Any other time and they may harass, attack or even kill each other.
