Set it up and everything and start with 5 bettas. Keep adding bettas until you reach how many you want. I say you could easily fit 40.

I have 35 females in a 55g sorority. That is plenty imo but make sure you get a solid cycle going if your going to stock like that and have good filtration with lots of plants and hidy places.

Don't want to hijack this thread but I am doing a very similar tank.

I am a little scared of adding Female Betas at different times, as I read that once the pecking order is set it can cause chaos adding more.

I would like to add 6 or maybe 8 at a time, please advise ?

dont have even numbers (4,6,8,10, etc) This will allow them to pair up. Always keep odd numbers

okies thanks for that...

So if I was to add 7 then another 7 the week later and keep doing so., maybe introducing a new bit of bogwood ect each time ?

Is it best to just let Mother nature take it course or should I break up any over zealous spats ?

I move fish all the time, I actually take everyone out and rearrange if there is an ilness or if I get new girls. For example, I just got 8 more females for my sorority, and so over the weekend I'm going to pull everyone out and cup them, rearrange everything, nothing will be where it used to be, and then I will reintroduce all at the same time. The key is to change things up whenever there are huge problems.
