Okay, so I want to do a pair of bettas. But could I fit 3 Bettas in there literally each fish would have over 10 gallons each I think that's reasonable, am I wrong? I watched this video on YouTube that says keep atleast 3 bettas because they like the company and if you just have 2 one might pick on the other one

Are they talking about ALL bettas? In general...they do not like the company of other bettas. You could do a community tank. 1 betta + other kinds of fish.

The only time you can keep bettas together is if you're attempting a sorority, and it does have a lot of room to go horribly wrong. Not that many people keep one, but it can be done with the right set up and the right bettas.

Here's more info on that if that's what they were talking about.

If you're dividing the tank for three bettas, then that's totally fine, but if you're talking about attempting a sorority of three female bettas, then that's not okay. You need at least five females to properly attempt a sorority. The link Reccka provided has lots of great information on how to set up a sorority. C:

Here's my tank. It's still cycling but Ive added some spare biological filters from other tanks and planted plants and it's getting close to be done. But I think I want to do 3 angelfish. Sororitys are scary. Do you think 4 Angels would be too much keep in mind I siphon substrate once a week. And do 30% water changes every few days sorry it's kinda dirty looking I've been doing maintenance
