Question Sorority tank sizes?

Ok so my mom is giving me her 5 gallon soon, she said possibly this week, as she is getting a new tank for her goldfish, and... I don't know what to put in it, and I was curious about a sorority of 4 bettas, since it is WAY more convenient then having a bunch of separate tanks for females.

So what is the minimum tank size for a 4 female sorority? and if the 5 gal is not big enough, what are some suggestions on what I can put in?
( I have been looking at a beautiful butterfly female on aquabid, gonna start saving up!)

5 gallons is too small for a sorority - there's room in that for 1 betta, and maybe a snail or shrimp. For a sorority, you want at least 10 gallons, but preferably 20, and it needs to be heavily planted and decorated. You also want at least 7 females. 4 isn't enough for them to establish a proper pecking order, and they are more likely to fight or even kill each other.

No worries! Better to ask again rather than get it wrong.
