Would this work?

I currently have my male crowntail in a 29 gallon with cories, neons, and hatchetfish. Everyone gets along well. I know male bettas shouldn't really be kept in communities although we have kept several in these setups fot multiple years. My question is I also have 4 female bettas as a sorority in a 10 gallon tank. Would it be okay for me to put the sorority girls in the 29 gallon with the other fish and move the male to the 10 gallon by himself? What do you guys think?

I think it would be fine. Just MAKE sure the females are OK, before you set him up in the 10 gallon.

Im sure it would be fine. The fish you have normally dont mess with anyone so they shouldnt mess with the bettas. I have never seen a corydoras mess with anything, my hatchetfish do nothing but try to jump out of my tank, and the neons just swim around the tank keeping to themselves.

I love mixing bettas with community fish too ;)
