Female Betta Sorority

So I decided to turn my 10 gallon into a female betta sorority. I bought two females today to join my original female. I changed the decor and released them together. There hasn't been any fighting or biting. The original female just occasionaly goes up to the others and kind of pecks at them to show she is dominant. There hasn't been any fin or scale damage. So I was wondering, how long until I am "home free" if there isn't any fighting for a while?

Also I would love this to be a 5 betta sorority. Is this too many for a 10 gallon tank? Could I still add some bottom feeders?

Or if I leave it at 3 bettas, what else can I add?

When/If I get the two other females, should I just change the decor again and release them together?

Thanks, sorry for so many questions, I just want to get it right :)

Oh and any other suggestions for a sorority newbie?

If you get 2 more, I would take the others out, change the decor around, then release all of them at once. There will be some more pecking and fighting until they re establish the pecking order.
