Female sorority - easy/hard?

Got two 10 gallons that I need something to do with. Have been thinking about a sorority. Just how hard or easy is it to get one going?

Pictures of yours would be great!!!

Sororites can be a lot of fun! Female bettas have a lot of personality and are gorgeous to watch swimming around together! But you have to be careful because females can be just as aggressive as males! You should have no less then 4, 6 or more is better, and you shouldn't really have an odd number because it's easier for one to get singled out and picked on.

I'm just starting out on my sorority and haven't added the fish yet. But I think at least 6 girls in a 10 gallon is a good number. Some people I've talked to have had up to 10 females in a 10 gallon to help spread around aggression but I wouldn't start out with that many if this is your first sorority.

No you have to add them all at once, starting with the least aggressive first, give them a couple minutes between adding another. But you want them in all together before they have a chance to establish a territory.

How do you tell which is the least aggressive? Most aggressive? When they are coming to me in a cup with not much room to do anything?
