Sometimes, if you have a reasonably big tank (10 gallons or more) and enough plants and hiding spots so sight lines are broken up.

I've had some female Bettas that lived peacably together and some that did not. Try it, but be prepared to move one of them if they seem agressive. A fish can literally antagonize another fish to death just by chasing it around. Good luck.

In my experience, females cannot live together. I had two in a ten gallon tank a few months ago and they fought and ripped one another's fins off. I had to separate them within five minutes of introducing them! Maybe it was because they were older females... hmmm...

I agree with Geegafish. It really depends on the bettas. It's generally better to keep either one female betta, or a small group, like 4 or more. That way one won't pick on the other too much - any aggression will be distributed among more fish so that one doesn't get picked on too much.

Generally, you keep at least 3 if you keep more than one together. Sometimes if you put two together often one will become a bully. It depends. That is just what i have heard. Oh, and also i read that if females are kept together they need 2 gallons each.

Practically speaking, that's not enough. I wouldn't want to try it.
