Two female what? That's impossible to answer without knowing what kind of fish you're talking about.

Usually in this section it is safe to assume that it's bettas people are talking about. You could add a small group of cories 3-5. You could also add a few male livebearers unless you want to be overrun with babies. Just don't get guppies or swordtails because the bettas might nip their long tails. If you don't want to get livebearers you could get some peaceful schooling fish such as tetras or harliquin rasboras. Good luck.

Yes, you could. Female bettas generally do great with other fish. I keep cories, platys, and angel, ADFs, and a pleco with my female betta. She can be a little bossy, but she doesn't nip. She keeps to herself for the most part. Just don't add a male betta, and you should be ok for the most part.

Mollies should be okay, except that they do better in brackish water. A plec would get too large, unless it's a bristlenose or something small.

If you want a pleco, get a Bristlnosed or clown. Common plecos will get very large (up to 24"), and will need a tank of around 75 gallons minimum.

Other bottom feeders are corydoras catfish and ottocinulus (sp?) catfish. Make sure you have algea for the ottos. Cories liek groups of 5 or more, and ottos like 3 or more.

Can you take out the caps please?
