Female Betta Fish In 10 Gal.

Right now I have a 10 gal set up with 6 peppered corydora catfish. I would like to keep some female Bettas in there with them. The tank willl be a planted tank, how many can I keep in it?

The safest way, would be to only to keep one, females do not always work out together.
If decide to get more than one, get 3 or 4 females. Having more than two, helps to distribute aggression.

With that many cories you could probably only keep one. Otherwise you'd need a group of at least 4 and I think you'd be overstocked with that many.

20 gallon long: 3 adult Neolamprologus similis + about 11 fry of various ages; low light planted tank
20 gallon long:2 freshwater dwarf puffers (Puff Puff and Poofer); medium-light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Wormy; low light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Dante; low light planted tank
2, 5.5 gallon tanks that are currently empty (I see more fish on the horizon )

Male bettas can't be kept together, ever. Females, however, can be kept in a soriety provided that the tank is large enough and that there are at least 4 of them. With three you take the chance that two will be forever pestering the weaker one. With four you spread out the aggression. Just an FYI

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
