I don't think it would be a good idea, many of your tanks are allreadyy overstocked, and bettas male or female don't get along with most fish.

You have fish in both of the bigger tanks that are incompatible with bettas in general. They are either going to cause the bettas problems or the bettas will cause them a problem.

36 gallon: Tetras and Shark

28 gallon: Angel and Tetras

The Shark and Angel are going to scare your betta into a hiding place and make her unhealthy and the Tetras are fin nippers and will have her fins infected with finrot before you have her a month.

Thanks, I never thought of those fish to be a threat since they are all very friendly, except the shark who just hides all of the time except for food which I hand feed anyways. But I'll take your word for it since your what I'd consider the Betta expert.

I don't really want to set up any more tanks for a few reasons. And for the 10 gallon, when the platy are gone, it goes into storage or just sits dormant until needed again. With of course the filter still going.
