To answer your question; you could possibly do the 7 gallon with 5 females but be warned, there's going to be a lot of fighting if you don't have enough plants and places for them to hide. And you can almost never overstock a tank for plants, so put lots and lots of plants!!!
And for my tanks, I've got 5 set up right now. One 3 gallon that is split for two baby Betta's, another 3 gallon for 1 male. 5.5 holds one male and my last Platy fry, 10 gallon is split into 3 for three males and then my 33 gallon sorority is holding the other 13
