Is a ten gallon sorority possible?

I have a 10 gallon that I've been cycling for nearly a month now that is heavily planted and has lots of hiding places. I was kind of wanting a sorority tank, but I didn't know it was possible with a 10 gallon tank. I know you can do it with 20 gallons, but seeing as this tank is already set up and cycled, I was going to see if it was doable. Obviously my concern is that all of the fish are happy and healthy, so if this is too dicey then I will simply divide it. Thank you :)

Yeah 10 gallon sorority is fine. I had a 10 gallon sorority that ran very well for months until I moved it to a different tank. Think I had 10-11 females in there at one point and they were always very happy and healthy.

I actually just found DramaQueen's thread on sorority tanks and it said 10 gallons is fine. I only think I will point 4-5 girls in there though and I need to get some more taller plants. I expect that this project will take place a while down the road, but I want to plan for it now and appreciate any feed back. :)

I would probably do five in a 10 gallon tank as a minimum. I only had so many as I was a bit of a hoarder of female bettas for a while haha
