Is it ok if i put 4-5 bettas and i know i can only have one male with cory cats and proble some guppys and other small fish
in a large tank, a female only betta sorority is the only way to go. Males don't mix with any other flashy fish or bettas.

Also, needs to be densely planted with places for each fish to go to hide out in with excess spaces. I'd recommend either a 30 gallon or 40 breeder for 4-6 females.

5 girls in a 20 gallon seems to be the point were success rates start going up. As with anything bigger is better. Heavily planted with plenty of sight line breaks.

And i suggest a 20 gallon long for female sororities with at least 5-7 bettas. Odd numbers work best. If you want other fish i would say something that moves slow but can with stand a betta chasing them and something with no color as bettas hate flashy colors. If you are asking this question i suggest more research and you are not ready for a sorority. Sometimes sororitys dont even work out for the most experienced people on this forum, its taking chances.
