2 males or a sorority? Help

I'm looking for advice and help with a decision for my 2nd 10 gallon tank. I was either going to start a 5 girl sorority or divide it into 2 (5gal) and get 2 males. For those who have seen me post know that I'm fairly new to this hobby and I haven't yet gotten a tank up and running. I'm really close, just need a heater and a few other supplies and I can start cycling my 7gal which is going to house 2 male Betta's already. Now I would just like a vote of which direction I should go for the 10 gallon. In your personal opinions should I attempt the sorority or settle with two more boys?

Personally, if you're fairly new to the hobby, I would go with 2 boys for now. A sorority can have many problems. It also might not work, in which case you'd have to figure out what to do with all the females. I love sororities but haven't attempted one myself yet.

But if you do the research and really feel you can handle it, go ahead and do the sorority :) My vote is for males though.

Even though it's only 3 votes (was hoping for more) I will go with 2 males or maybe a male AND female (of course separated) or would that be a bad idea for a male and female to be in the same divide tank?

If you can find a local breeder, definitely set up a sorority with female bettas that have known each other their entire lives.
