IMO a 5gal might just be big enough for one single betta. Do you have any heater/filter in there at all?

yep heater and filter.
if it starts to seem overcrowded ive got 2 empty 10 gallons i could setup quick.

i figured the idea of a 5 gallon with more than 5 inches of fish in it might startle some of you. no worries though its under control.

And BTW why would you want to squeeze all these fish into a 5gal if you have 2 10gal?
