At least 3 females. Avoid crowntails and reds. Preferably put halfmoon females in the tank. Provide plenty of plants and a good filter.

3 might be too few. The more females you have will spread out the aggression a little more.5 gallons might be a little small. They'll need lots of hiding places. If they have already been living together then they should be ok.

Hello, this is my first posting. Last September I had purchased three beta who were labeled female, a white crown tail, a red regular beta, and a blue regular beta. They each live in separate tanks because of each girl is territorial. Anyway, Lately I've noticed a big changed in my red female beta, or rather I took the time to notice how different she is from her "Sisters". She has grown larger fins then my blue beta, and has a larger body than my crowntail, I'm wondering if she is a different breed than the pet store told me, or is she changing gender because of her single sex environment, even if she has no contact at all with her "sisters". I've heard of fish doing that, but never beta fish.

It might be a plakat male. Plakats are shortfinned bettas. If it has an egg spot then it's a female.

Yah a picture would really help help. I could tell the difference between male and female until I saw plakats I dont even try to sex them. Like dramaqueen said the white pearl on the under belly will prove that it is a female.
