Aggression question

Hey AA users got I quick question hope you can answer for me. My neighbor has a 90g corner tank
His stock is:
a mix of real and fake plants
5 diamond head tetras
5 emporer tetras
6 prestilla tetras
6 serpae tetras
2 upside down cats
6 corys
8 danios(assorted)
6 rainbowfish(assorted)
5 buenos aires tetras
5 cherry barbs
3 swords
1 Molly
1 platy

My(his) question is he just added 6 harliquins and 5 female betas (and since he works for the local pet store chain in the fish dept) the question is how aggressive will the betas be towards his other fish

a female serority like he has there wouldnt be as agressive as a normal single male, i dont think youl have any problems. maybe just a little agression toward each other as pecking order.

the female bettas will only be agressive to the other female bettas, as a dominance thing.. if it were a smaller tank, say a 30 gallon, yea, thered be problems, but theres alot of room.

Definitely, if he removed some of the smaller schools, and took out some of the fish from the larger schools, it should still be fine.
