How many girls in this tank?

I am picking up my new girl today and already have the FLUVAL EBI tank set up and cycled and i was curious as to how many females you could have inside the tank.

These are the dimentions:

7.9 gal (mine is likley more since i removed the 3D backing on the tank)
11.8" x 11.8" x 13.75" high (basically a cube)

If i can't have more then one female i'm going to go with cherry shrimp / neon tetras

Hmmm. It's risky. I'd recommend 4 females, and if you can, try to get sisters! If it doesn't work out, then make sure you have a backup plan for all of them. I managed to get all my females together in a temporary 5 gallon, with lots of live plants and decorations to hide and disrupt line of sight.

But cherry shrimp and neon tetras sound fine too!

There's a lot of plants currently and I'll be adding more tomorrow :) will be even better once it grows in!

They currently had 5-6 females in the tank together do you think these are sisters? Maybe I could temporarily start with 2 and add more within the week. Females of good colour are hard to come by in my area :(

You should at least have a 10 g (a 20 g is better), and you shouldn't have less than 5 females. If I were you, I would get only one female and the cherry shrimp and tetras. Do not start with two and then add more, as they will fight with each other.
