I am not new to the aqurium hobby but its been a long time since ive done freshwater. With taht said i'm currently setting up a 90 gallon betta community tanks and need advice on keeping at least multiple males and any amount of females that is needed . Any help before i pit more that one male in the tank would be very helpful thanks

Yes!!!! Don't do it, Don't put males together in the same tank, at any time. I don't care how big it is. The only way you could do it is to partition the tank one for each male. and each Partition must go from the bottom of the tank clear to the top with no room for a fish to get to the other side.

Absolutely agree with @Old Dog 59.
Male Bettas cannot share a tank. No exceptions.

Female Bettas may be able to live in ‘sororities’ but PLEASE if you are going to try this, then research it in depth.

In the reading I have done on the subject, the forum threads and articles I have seen, the different success and failure stories... these sorority tanks seem to fail, pretty disastrously. The conditions need to be precise and the fish seem to live in chronic stress.

I set my tanks up in the long term. Trying to build a healthy, stress free environment for the inhabitants where they can live comfortably for their natural span. Min stress and aggro for me AND the fish.

So, if I had a 90g tank, there are a great number of other options I would choose before trying a sorority.
