Red face Can 2 females live with a male?

I'm going to be getting a 10 gallon fish tank. I read that if you keep 2 females for each male than they wouldn't fight...?

Also, I want to have albino cory cats with them. Would it be a good set up with: 2 female Bettas, 1 male Betta, 3 or 4 albino corycats, and a few ghost shrimp?

BTW I know that Bettas eat shrimp sometimes and I wont be devastated if that happens

MALE AND FEMALE BETTAS CANT BE KEPT TOGETHER. They'll fight or be super stressed. Either a male betta or a female betta. IMO 10g isnt large enough to have a soroity of female bettas either. The cories should be fine with the one male/female betta. ^^

In my experience, 10g is a perfectly good size for a betta sorority. Of course, bigger is better. however a sorority can function just fine in a 10g.

Though I do agree that you should never EVER put a male with any number of females unless you plan on breeding. Which I wouldn't recommend unless you know exactly what you're doing.

Females will have the same size requirements as a male, yes. A 2.5 is the smallest you'll want to go though!

2.5 gallons is fine under my experience, but you will have to do water changes very often to keep the female healthy

2.5 gals is perfect- if you get it filtered- you can do water changes once a week (25-40%)
