It could work but I wouldn't try it. From what I've gathered the best thing is 6 females in a heavily planted 10 gallon tank.

Tp spread out agression you need at least 6. 3 would severely overcrowd a 2.5g. I would stick with just one.

yeah 3 might be a bit much for a 2.5 gal tank :\ i love my female bettas, and they arent hard to mix, but you REALLY need a refuge if theres any agression. removing then readding the fish works extremely well in my limited experience to quell agression among females. maybe pick yourself up a 10 gal from petco for 12 bucks and use the 2.5 as a refuge?

just a thought :)
