Amazing. The answer to can I keep males and females together.

I stumbled across this by complete accident. This is amazing! The tank looks great but the fact he was able to breed all these bettas and have them live together too

Lol well that sounds pretty obvious

Like female betta can be kept together as long as they are not aggresive to each other. I think that applies with a lot of aggresive fish

Its not like female bettas who may or may not get on.
Betta Albimarginata are not aggresive to each other. Males and females can be kept in same tank. They breed in same tank (mouth brooders). No need to seperate. So it is not amazing that he could breed and keep them in the same tank.

There are many different species of bettas, the ones you see on here (betta splendens) are only one type.

If you raise a spawn with their father they will live with eachother because there is already a supremely dominant male all their lives. One they are removed from eachother they start becomeing more aggressive and developing beautiful color, where as when they are together they are dull.

So... that's why it worked.

No !!!!!! It worked because they are a different type of Betta. They are different fish, they cannot be crossbred.
Betta splendens cannot live together, they fight.
Betta Albimarginata CAN live together, they do not fight.

Okay one last time. Notice that the names both start with betta but the last names are different. Although they are both bettas they are different fish.

BETTA SPLENDENS. This is the type everone on here has. Cannot live together. They fight.

BETTA ALBIMARGINATA. Different type of betta. They can live together. They do not fight.
