Whats the smales size tanks for multiple females?

Been thinking of getting a few females. Can you put only 3 together, or 4 better?
What the smallest size tank best for them?

Maybe a 5.5g, but you could do it much easier in a 10g with 5 or 6 fish.

10 gallon is what is usually reccommended, with lots of plants and hiding places. You need to have at least 4 females to spread out the aggression.

10 gallon or more 4 is best but i have 3 in a 30 gallon right now because one just died and the other is in teh breeding tank.

they need lots of hiding holes and should be introduced together, then watched carefully.

Its always sad to hear about the loss of any pet...no matter the size.
Thanks for the info.
If they should start to fight...will they need to be separated, or is it just part of working out their order?

I'm sorry for your loss, I myself lost two females before getting my sorority tank going.

Right now I have my girls in a 3.5 gallon tank, but they are all very very small and there are alot of hiding places. I'm upgrading to a 55g for my community tank in a few weeks and putting my girls into the 10g tank that I use for a community tank right now. Yes I know that a 3.5g tank is not very big for four fish, but it's all I could afford right now and like I said, they are all very young and thus really small and they are moving as soon as my 55g is cycled.
