Nope, they'll still attack each other even if they're raised as brothers, definitely don't put two males together. If you want to put more than one betta in a tank, go for female sororities however I wouldn't recommend 9 in a 10 gal cuz thats a bit much, maybe around 4-6. In your ten gal, make sure to have a filter, heater, and plenty of decorations!

No, they can fight sometimes even killing each other. But they can become good neighbors though. And as Betta Slave said you can have females together, but even females can be aggressive if not more than a male.

Bettas: Rose, Sophia, Addie, Ghost, Buster, Holt, Aidan, and Mercutio!

Whoa there, hold your horses!
Do some research, then research, and research some more until your brain hurts! If you go into the breeding bettas section of the forum there's a sticky on how to breed bettas. But it is VERY TIME CONSUMING and you could end up with 300 fry with nothing to do with them. Start with one betta and go from there.

For choosing a betta, I've always went with the spunky route, if he's got a lot of spunk color doesn't matter much.

Of course.... but do you know three hundred people who would each like a betta?
See your problem there? You could end up with too many and know not enough people to take them and you would end up having to cull them.
DO NOT sell to pet stores... they take dreadful care of their bettas.

...Well, in short, flush them. You could end up with 3oo fish and have to flush them.
