Question pictus catfish or redtail sharks w/ female bettas?

i have a 55 gallon tank with 10 female bettas and am curious if it would be ok to get a pictus or two, or maybe some of the redtailed sharks...instead of typical corys

theres lots of plants and even driftwood to hide around and stuff.

anyone have any opinions on whether they can go together or have first hand experience??

I don't know anything about pictus but I've heard that redtailed sharks are territorial and aggressive and I don't think they would mix well with bettas, who are also territorial. Someone can correct me if 'm wrong.

Red tailed sharks are aggressive, I know that you can't keep more than one because they are very terretorrial with each other. I wouldn't risk it.

Pictus catfish should be fine, though. they're cute little guys. :P
