Question Multiple females

I currently have my first female (I've had males before, and have 1 right now) and she is adorable and much more fascinating than I expected (i know it sounds not nice) so I'm looking into getting a larger tank and putting more females together. Some tips and advice for going about this would be great. I think I would be looking at a 5.5 gallon tank, i don't really have the space for a 10 gallon. Thanks !

10 gallon is the best since females need their own territory

I don't think you can have more then one female in a 5.5, I'm pretty sure ten gal. is the smallest you should have(if you do get a ten gal. I'm pretty sure the limit of females issupposed to be like four or five)

in order to have multiple females you need a 10 gallon tank because you have to have 4+ females. In a 5 gallon you can't have more than two fish and two females will fight like two males unless divided.

I float a new female in a clear cup for 1 day to introduce them to each other. They all get alone well with each other.
