and even if you set it up with 4 or more females in 10 gallons or more- some females are more aggressive than others and they still might fight.
my Lulu for example is currently chasing around a huge mollie trying to bite him because she's just a mean fish.

The reason is that female bettas need at least 3 other females (either that or just keep 'em seperate) because they will establish a social order of dominance. If you keep less than 4, they may seem okay (compared to 2 males!) but they will slowly bully each other to death unless there are more females to distribute the aggression.

actually, you can do it with some docile young females. BUT IT IS NOT RECOMMENDED!!! During my big betta rescue last year i ran out of diveders and places to put my bettas, and I had two females in with a guppy in a 5 gallon tank, and everyone got along, and still gets along 5 months later
