Saved two bettas from wedding.

I just got home from an outdoor wedding (in a tent) where the centrepieces were female bettas in mason jars. Please note I am from Ontario, Canada it was darn cold!! Anyway out of the 25 jars I only brought home two. If I had unlimited space I would have brought them all!
My daughter has a male betta so I was joking I brought him home a couple of girlfriends. (I have no plans to breed them, not sure if I want to get into that.)
I am not sure if I can put two females in a tank together though, and how big should the tank be?
Thanks. I will post pictures of Poly and Lilo soon.

Those poor girls, I'm so glad that you got to save atleast a couple!!! It might be best to keep them seperate for now, as sororities are alot of work, and you need at least four females to have a proper sorority. If you wanted to have four together, you would need atleast a ten gallon tank, and you would have to watch them closely to make sure that they don't fight too much for the first few days. Since you just have the two, keep them seperate and just care for them like you would a male betta =) we would love to see pictures, females are sooo cute!!!!!

They are really cute, I couldn't even see them properly until I got home. They are striped.
If I had known I would have brought home four!! I guess I will have to get two small tanks if I can't put them together. Not sure if I have the room for that. Maybe a tank with a divider? will that work?

a divider will work out great!!!!! a five gallon with a divider wouldn't take up too much space, and it would give them both plenty of room. Their stripes should go away once they get comfortable in their new home =)

We were in an enclosed tent, with very few heaters. It was cold! They are better now.
This is how they were displayed (minus the fake flowers) and their temporary homes until I can get a tank.
