Would it be possible?

I was wondering if I can put a male betta inside some kind of betta condo but something that holds at least 2 gallons with suction cups and then put that inside my 55 gallon sorority tank?

Yes! I've seen that a lot of people have those. I've actually really been considering getting another tank and doing male condos all up and down the sides, but that'll have to wait till april.

I wasn't so sure because I didn't want to stress the females or the male.

I mean they will all probably be stressed for the first few days, but they'll grow accustomed to it fast.
I actually had a male in a breeder net setting in my sorority tank for a few months and he absolutely loved it, after I removed him he died from depression. Or atleast that's the way I like to think about it, he actually moped around for 2-3 weeks and then got dropsy

Do you guys know of a 2 gallon tank with suction cups, I don't want the betta condos/barracks because those are to small and I want the male to have plenty of space?

You might have to make your own, especially if you want there to be any water flow through it. I have a small floating thing that is for putting baby fish and it has a grate on either side for water flow. If that was bigger it would be perfect.

That looks kind of what I am looking for but I think is too small.

Yes, unfortunately that is way too small. I mean, you don't have to worry about water quality for something like that, but there isn't much space.

Hmm... if you are technically able you could get some sort of plastic container, drill holes in it for water flow (so tiny), and attach suction cups with aquarium safe silicone.
