Female betta in a community tank?

What kind of fish would a female betta be able to live peacefully with? I've looked around a lot for answers and I'm getting all sorts of mixed/contradicting information.
Has anyone added a female to their community tank that could give me some advice?

One of mine lives well with peppered cory catfish. I see her hanging out with them sometimes at the bottom of the tank.

I have a 10 gallon with 5 females and some endlers guppies, ghost shrimp, otos, and a snail and everyone is great friends! Not sure if this is normal tho. I set up this tank for a very docile male who recently passed so I decided to go with females instead of risking a fishy massacre. All seems to be going well the females swim with the guppies quite frequently!
