Maxiumum Female Bettas?

Hey guys so recently I just picked up a used but still good 62 gallons tank. I've already given it a good scrub with warm water and vinegar and its looking good. I plan to use it as a grow-out tank for when I start breeding bettas. But I'm just curious, how many betta females can I house in there, assuming its heavily planted?

25-30 you could easily fit more bio load wise, but when taking into consideration, females can be just as aggresive as males meaning that they still all should have personal space

I reckon you could squeeze as many as 35, but 30 or less would be a much more sensible number. :) I'm very jealous - I want a tank that big! My girls would love it!

Just 6. I'd probably cap it at ten and fill the rest of the tank with beautiful community fishes. :D

I have a 55 gallon and I have about 50 of them in there. It's about a gallon a fish which is the standard for fresh water fish. :)
