Scarlet badis in a 5 gallon

Hello,

I have a Marineland ML90609 Portrait Aquarium Kit, 5-Gallon that I am planning to set up and cycle soon. Once it's all ready I was planning to make it a species tank and stock it with scarlet badis. I want to only purchase males as they are the ones that have the beautiful blue and red color, but I heard that they can become aggressive towards one another if they don't have enough room to establish their own territory. Is it possible to have a male only scarlet badis 5 gallon tank? If so how many can I put in there?

Thank you.

I've not worked with badis, but Rachel O'Leary, a specialist in nano fish and nano tanks, did a video on them a while back you may find helpful:
