If you are planning on sorority, keep in mind that not all of the girls will necessarily be compatible with others. The lady at the pet store was not completely wrong--some females can be as aggressive as males. Even if your tank can potentially hold a lot of females, keep in mind that if one or many of these females are not compatible with each other, it will be your responsibility to house them separately in heated tanks that you must maintain.
Don't get so many girls that you wouldn't be able to take care of them separately if things don't go as planned.
