Sorrority/guppy ratio?

I have a 20gallon long tank that currenty has some guppies.
I've recently re-homed 8(3 males 5 females) and I'm rehoming 3-4 more males here on Monday.

I have 5 young female bettas who I'm setting up a sorority with(all 5 from the same breeder) and I've heard they can occasionally be kept with other fish.

I want to do it while they're still young and less agressive.
With these 5 girls, how many guppies would I be able to keep in the 20 long(so I know how many more I need to rehome).

The tank is lightly planted with real plants, cycled, has 6 MTS(I'm rehoming three of them) and 1 apple snail.
I'm going to be adding more plants next week.

I have a community of guppies tetras shrimp snails a dwarf frog and several pet store females. No real problems. Just keep an eye on them.

One does not simply buy one Betta fish.
