My Betta fish (becca) doesn't want to eat at all and she just sits there at the bottom if the tank... I want to know what to do.

If your betta isn't eating or swimming much, it's probably because of the heat. How warm is your tank?

How many bettas can I put in a 10 gallon fish tank? I was thinking about 17. I cycled my tank with 2 gallons of ammonia yesterday, so my tank is ready to go!

Your tank is not ready to go if you added ammonia yesterday. Please read the stickies. That's not cycling.

You can put between 4 and 6 female bettas in a 10 gallon, or divide it for 2 males. If you are not experienced with bettas, I would suggest not trying a sorority yet.

^Listen to bombalurina. I have a 10g too with two males (divided of course). That's it for males. For females, don't even think about a sorority unless you have experience. Males are hard enough.

17 is way too much. 5 females is ideal, or divide between two males.
I would in NO way try a sorority yet. I have one and the first week is a constant headache (and the weeks after). Two males look beautiful together.

Your tank is not cycled. Cycling takes a few weeks. Google it to find a good technique.

"Vegetables such as peas can cause severe damage to a betta’s digestive tract and should be avoided."

I thought peas were good for constipation. I also read Bettas like broccoli and spinach occasionally. What's up?

+1

Also you never know with girls.If one gets stressed,or set off just sllightly she can viciously attack and even kill the other. Some females are just plain mean and have to be treated like males-kept separate from their own kind
