For a 1 gallon tank only one female can go in it. But a tank that small will require 100% daily water changes. If you want to keep females together, you'll need at least a 10g tank with plants and hiding spots and at least 4 female bettas.

In a tank that's how many gallons? I think you left the number out. =]

Unless you meant 1 gallon. in that case just one.

I'd purchase the ten or 20 gallon kit at walmart. they're about $40-$50 and they come with a filter and hood.

Those are perfect sizes for communities.

1 female in a gallon. A heavy planted 20 gallon and 4-6 girls would be good.

Yes as frogipoi stated they should be heavily "planted" whether with real or silk plants. they need lots of places to hide from each other. =]

*hi-five* Females are as aggressive as males and even more but soon they will be used to each other and they say " Well it is no use hurting our selves when we can hide but... I WILL KILL YOU!" Crazy some times.

No. To successfully keep female bettas together you need at least a 10g tank that is heavily planted with some hiding spots and you need at least 4 females.
