You need to have at least 4 female bettas for a sorority tank to spread out their agression. You could easily keep 20-40 female bettas in a 55 gallon tank.

I'd do 30 girls and 5-6 cories.

Just because I don't type with candy and rainbows doesn't mean I'm being mean.
My opinions are based on research and experience. Ask for help!

A tank that size is going to have to be cycled.
