Female Bettas

I have now taken out all of my inhabitants in my 6 Gallon and placed them into my 30 Gallon. I did gravel vacs, water changes, etc, and now the tank the tank is ready for some new inhabitants. I have been looking into female bettas, and I am interested in buying some. How many females could I place in the 6? I was thinking 3 or 4, but I want to reduce aggresion as much as possible. Thoughts?

Female bettas are just as aggressive and sometimes even more so than the males. The rule for keeping them is still 1 per tank/container. Mixing them will simply result in 1 dominant female that chews the others fins which leads to fungal infections and eventual death. Should you happen to get the fins healed by medicating, unless you stop the fin chewing from the other females the same thing will just continue until you have 1 or no fish left.
In 6 gallons there is room for 1 female betta.
