Sorority Question!

Next weekend I'm getting a 20 gallon tank (I think its bigger, (my grandma isnt an expert on fish tanks ) My plan is to divide off 4 gallons for a Male Betta, then using the remaining 15-16 gallons for a Sorority. How many females can I have in it? Its going to be planted partially with live plants and a few fake ones. thank you!

5-7 females but that would be torture for the poor male hed try and make a giant bubble nest seeing all the pretty ladies lol. Youl need to read up on soritys if your planning one

Male Bettas: Renji (Red VT), Hitsugiya (Blue VT), Riddle (multicolor VT), Kirameki (unknown colored baby DT), Ataturk (Orange Dalmatian VT), Darian (Blue Butterfly VT)
Female Bettas: Sorority tank know as the Sailor Scouts and Wicked Lady (gun metal blue VT)
Cats:3 Hermit Crabs:2 Turtle: 1
Other Fish: around 25 in a 125 gallon community tank

The male may be fine, just put plenty of tall plants next to the divider to help break up the line of sight. He will eventually get used to seeing the females.

Make sure to have plenty of plants in the sorority- I mean lots and lots, short, medium and tall, all over with plenty of hiding spots.

You can get possibly a couple guppies (same sex to avoid them going nuts), or a couple platies- otherwise most of the "betta safe" fish require schools of 5+.. 16 gallons is a nice size, but you have to make sure the bio load isn't too much for the 20 gallons.

Looking forward to some pictures!

Breeder so I have too many to count and too many named to list here!
