Beta's.. Hrmm. Interesting. I have a tank with about 37 Danios, 8 neons, 2 clown loaches (They are happy despite not being 5 or more) and a crap load of shrimp. And one chinese algae eater that I could care less about.

Could I put a female beta int his mix?

side note.. 5 of the danios are glo fish.

I would have to say no. Ratio of males to females should be anywhere between 3-6 females per male as far as I have read, though I am not talking form experience. Adding female bettas in with a male is always risky. Adding floating plants and lots of hiding places with minimise the risk however.
