Males can be in a community tank, just try it out. Some betta's are more aggressive than others. For instance, my betta killed two ghost shrimp he lives with, but doesn't hurt the ADF's. Others bettas don't kill the ghost shrimp they live with. I think it's just the attitude of the betta himself.

The one thing i've been told is that they like to be the centerpiece fish, so don't add any other semi-aggressive or worse fish with him. Just peaceful community fish like corys etc.

I think males look better, they have the bigger prettier fins.

Google them and see the diff.

You can keep multiple FEMALE betta together sometimes. All depends on the 'tude of the fish you pick.
