Six females in a 10 gallon is fine. Female bettas are like cichlids, you want to overstock as it disperses aggression and stops individual fish from being targeted. The only downside to this, is that water quality is paramount, and you need a filter with plenty of room for biological filtration.

You also definitely want to have as much cover as possible. This should cover all levels of the tank. I find tall plants, whether fake or live a much better alternative to caves and other artificial decorations.

First, you may want to consider starting your own thread in the future. This is a very old thread, and it is usually considered rude to ask your own question in someone else's thread.

With that said, welcome to the forum! Do you mean that each betta has it's own tank, or that you have two in one tank? If you only have two in that tank, I would separate them immediately. Bettas are extremely territorial, even females, and they don't do well at all in pairs. Either that, or start a sorority with 4 or so more bettas, but this is not for the inexperienced fish keeper, or the faint of heart (even in a properly set up sorority, deaths can and do happen).

Females will end up being anywhere between 2" to 2 3/4" long. Some may be slightly shorter and some may be slightly longer, but most fall in this range.
