Female Bettas

I have a five gallon tank that I set up awhile ago, and I've been thinking that I'll stock it with some female bettas. I was wondering how many females TOPS should I consider. I know that some females have personalities that make it so they can't be together, and to have an extra tank or two on hand for those who can't bond. So would you suggest two together? Three? Or just keep it at one? I'm still not sure if I'll even get females, but I'm thinking it out. Any info would help (:

I would just keep it at one. To have a successful sorority tank, you need a 10 gallon or larger with lots of plants and hiding places. You also need at least 4 to spread out the aggression.

I'm glad you asked before jumping into it.Sometimes people jump into things and it turns out to be a disaster.

Yop. I agree with drama.

30 gallons. I wish I could have a community of females in a 30 gallon but my 30 gallon is my largest growout ;) I'm settling for 20 gallon tubs to house my females from each spawn in.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

A 30 gallon sounds perfect for a female sorority. Everyone can have their own little area.

I wish I had tanks that size. I would either turn it into a sorority or put a bunch of tetras, glo fish, cory's and small fish like that in it.

If I was getting anything other than bettas, I'd try cories but they have to have a sand substrate and a filtered, cycled tank.
