Female Betta fish can live together in the same tank.

Although don't put male betta fish together in the same tank as they will fight and likely end up killing each other.

But most female betta fish are great and okay together in the same tank.

You can put two or more betta fish together, but you must follow some rules to prevent not only duels-to-the-death but the more common bullying.

Male & Male
Don’t put two males together. They will fight until one is dead.

Female & Female


You can put two or more females together, but this is something that must be done cautiously.

If you put more than two females together, then you must introduce the same number at the same time.

If you want to have three females, you must introduce them all at the same time.

If you add 1 + 2, then there will be bullying of the one. Consider these possibilities:
