Do you have a pic of it? Someone else can reply with experience of males and females together. I am not sure how big a tank it needs to be but I will find out.

Males and females should never be housed together except for breeding purposes.

Myth:
Taken from ub:
Betta myths

Male bettas can be kept with groups of female bettas.
Reality: Many pet stores suggest keeping a male betta with a small harem of females, and some betta keepers have tried this set-up with limited short term success. However, in the long run, such an arrangement almost always results in the injury or death of the females, male, or both; male and female bettas were not made to co-habitate outside of brief periods of mating and will aggress upon each other. Male bettas should never be kept with any member of their species.

Myth: A male and female betta can be housed together as mates in the same tank.
Reality: Bettas are a solitary species; they do not form mate bonds and thus will not recognize one another as companions. The only time one should attempt to place a breeding pair of bettas together is during the actual mating; a male and female betta housed one on one is asking for a massacre. Even with a careful introduction and supervised mating, injuries and deaths during reproduction are not uncommon. Male and female bettas simply should not be housed together, period.

Yeah, don't put females and males together unless you're breeding. Bad bad idea.

Yes, I did that once, they were NOT happy about it. I would never suggest it. They breed, but rarely rarely live together.
