Betta Pugnax compatibility specifics

Greetings. I have been advised that I'll have a chance to purchase some Betta pugnax at auction tomorrow. I'm aiming to give them a tank of their own in time. I have 6 10s, a 15, and 3 20 high tanks that are empty at the moment waiting for me to set up my fish room. Until that happens (sometime this fall, probably), I would have to put these in a community tank.

My options:
1) A 33 high with Guppies, Platies, Cories, a Clown Pleco, and a small SAE.
2) A 25 with a school of neons (7 or 8), some wild mollies (5 or 6, about 1.5") and an albino Bristlenosed pleco.

I can rule out any of my other tanks as having either the wrong water, very active and potentially nippy fish, predators, or a full bioload.

Do either of the communities I listed have the potential to house a half dozen juvenile B. Pugnax for 3 months or so? Howsabout a trio of adults?

My last resort is I have a 10 gallon with 2 ottos and 3 female bettas (who beat 4 of their tankmates to death). I could sell these violent babes at auction and set the pugnaxes up in there temporarily.

What say?

They should be just fine in either thank. Personally I'd put them in the 25, but only cuz it sounds less busy. They're pretty much peaceful although they can get a little mean when breeding.
