Here's the tank! The original plan was to stagger the sections but I abandoned that plan halfway through so the left side Is staggered while the right is normal. I put my 2 larger males in the staggered sections and the smaller 2 in the regular.

Your female bettas should only be put together in groups of 3+. They need to develop a hierarchy and odd numbers of bettas are best. If you want the females to get along you should put them all in at the same time so no one fish has territorial issues. I suggest you rearrange your aquascaping and remove both female bettas and when you have more bettas put them back to their "new environment" or the existing bettas will pick on the new additions to their home. Keep an eye on them, cause they have a tendency to pick on the weakest link. Not all female betta communities work and you should know that sometimes female bettas simply don't get along with each other. If you have 3 or 5 bettas and notice aggression in one and lots of picking on a specific fish - take out the one being picked on rather than the aggressive betta as it throws off the hierarchy. Ideally for betta communities are best if you get siblings from a breeder. (Sorry betta enthusiast here!)

I had to remove the 3rd betta I added. All she did was fight with my red female. my red female hasn't touched my little girl since they've been together and they work great together so I'm not worried about it honestly Lol. But thanks for the advice!
