I have 2 females with 4 guppies and a frog in a ten gallon, they all get along fine. My girls hang out with each other a lot. They hardly chase or nip at each other, i've never had injuries with them.

I'm surprised the female Bettas actually get along. They probably will eventually fight to the death since there are only two.

5green, also, if you plan to get 3-4 bettas then get a bigger tank. 3 gallons won't be enough. I suggest a 10 to be safe.

Aris - Pure white HM! 5 gallon.
~RIP~
Pheonix - Red VT with blue highlights. 5 gallon
Died of dropsy.

Future plans:
2 bettas to fill my divided 10 gallon

Filling my 35 gallon tank, going to be a sorority once i get money for decorations...and fishies...and plants...and meds, filter, heater, light...

I would suggest at least 4 females. And yes, a 10 gallon would be needed for that many fish.

There are 4 guppies and a frog (who hides, so he's basically never there) in the same tank. The guppies probably distract them.
I want another girl :)
