A 10 gallon will work and you can put 4-6 in it with lots of plants and hiding places.

1 male in a 10 gallon with that setup is fine. Just keep in mind that you can't mix males and females together

5 bettas is a good setup for a 10 gallon. I also have 3 ghost shrimp, 5 rasboras, and 1 molly.

I don't recommend the molly. she's a real bully and fin nipper, and I'm looking for an opportunity to get rid of her, but if you manage good water changes, keep live plants, you can have a couple extra fish than the general 1" per gallon fish rule.
