Talking 10 gallon tank. What to do with it?

Okay so I have an extra 10 gallon tank (already have one (divided) with two male bettas in it) and a third male in his own 3.5 gallon, and was wondering what I should do with this one:

A female sorority
divide this one as well to get two more males

I like both males and females, so I'm really waffling back and forth right now on the choice.
Which do you think would be more fun to watch?

I already have a hood and lights for it, and would be picking up a heater regardless of the choice the next time I went to the store. If I go with a divided tank I also already have the materials to make a divider for it (I always keep spares around, it's cheap anyhow). I'd still need to get plants and decorations regardless, although I still have a pair of spare PVC caves. I'm considering finally making the jump to live plants for this tank, so do you think the males or females would get better use out of them?
Is there something else I should be considering in making this decision?

I'd say go with the female sorority. ;)

I like the idea of a female sorority, too.

I think it would be fun to have the females.

Seems the women are winning the race three to zero currently. xD
Does anyone else keep a sorority that can offer any tips about anything they may need that differs from male betta care?

I would looooovvvveee to be able to have some cherry shrimp in a tank of mine someday, but none of the stores around here carry any. It's kind of sad, they only ever have ghost or grass shrimp, and the marine sorts, which are also gorgeous, but unable to go in freshwater tanks. I miss my fire shrimp from my saltwater tanks.

I will be getting Java fern regardless of what else goes in the tank, one of my local stores carries it and they look great.

Had to look up a couple of those other suggestions, the threadfin rainbows are gorgeous and look like fun.... but I bet they wouldn't get along with bettas (male or female) at all. xP Not sure if I'm willing to give up the whole tank for a non-betta species.
