I kept three imbellis in a 12x12x12 inch tank that was heavily planted up with java moss and provided plenty of hiding space. They got along fine aside from the occasional display and sparring match.

However, for a smaller pair of wild bettas I always think 10 gallons is a good starting point. Wild bettas can get tetchy with each other (particularly pre-spawning) and so you want the space for them to be able to get away from each other. Also if they do breed and you can't get all the fry out, it gives you some wriggle room in regards to maintaining water quality and giving the fry somewhere to hide.

Stiktos would be the easiest type to keep in a group. Males only flare very rare that they will fight. But stiktos are rare in the wild

sorry, but i dont think those are wild they may have wild blood in them but they dont show any characteristic that says they are wild. As you can see my picture (my wild caught Splenden) the dorasl fin has stripes witch indicates wild and wild bettas are much lighter
What exactly did you mean by lighter? The bettas in Fabian's pictures look like they are a lighter color to me??

any bettas from the splenden complex group is easy to care for im not sure about others such as mouth brooders. they are the hard ones to care for cause they are ph sensitive unlike the splenden complex group

you might have to have kepted wilds for you to know wat im talking about
but my pictures might shed some light on his bettas if its wild or not.

Due to the fact that @Fabins bettas have pure blood splendens characteristic in them im going to use one of my pure bloods and his betta to use as an example. I hope you dont mine me drawing on your bettas Fabin
