female betta tank mates?

I have bettas falling out of my ears currently so i was thinking about swapping around some of my tanks. would it be doable to put one of my female bettas (currently in a divided 5G with another female betta) in with 2 or 3 platys or mollies in a 10G tank? she seems pretty aggressive. she flares at herself often and it took her about 2 weeks to stop worrying about her timid little divided neighbor(which never flared or cared about the other girl).

or my question i guess is: is it possible to put one female betta in a small community 10G?

I think you can try it first to just see. Maybe have the other fish in there and she is just observing for like half a day.

I would try the more timid girl with the tankmates, if you can. An aggressive female will probably not get on with the platies. I wouldn't recommend mollies at all - too nippy, too large and prefer different water.
