No you cannot put a female in with a male betta, they will almost deffinitely hurt eachother. If you want a tank mate in a 2.5 gallon tank I would suggest maybe a shrimp. Thats about the only option I know of for a tank that size. If you wanted more fish you would have to upgrade to a larger tank like a ten gallon, then you could have some cories or other small bottom feeders.

I've heard it can be possible if you have a very large, well planted tank that the female can hide in. Otherwise, it's a bad idea.
