Well, you can only have two females together if there is a tank divider in-between them. Read the sticky about Female betta sororities if you want to house them together without a divider.

Oh and the smallest tank I'd ever divide is a 5 gallon.

I would only divide a tank 6 gallons or more. Preferably not smaller than 10 gallons IMO. You can't keep females together unless you do a sorority of AT LEAST 4 but 6 works better.

I only have 2 girls not seperated and they dont fight At All. i got them both younger and smaller and threw em in together and they do just fine. My smaller one follows the bigger one (not by much on size) and they do lots together. Sometimes(rarely) the bigger one will push the other one away but no nipping just like a little headbutt and the other one will just swim away not even scared.

But that may be just me :D

You could try it but you better be prepared in case one beats the heck out of the other. 2 getting along so well doesn't happen very often.

It would be safer just to divided the tank. Two female bettas can be like two male bettas. They might fight to the death D: Just because they don't fight in the beginning, doesn't mean that one day they won't fight!
