If you can find female Bettas that have already been living together, that's best.

Odd numbers do not magically make them ok together. That's a fable.

If you have a local Betta or Aquarium club you may be able to get young sisters to raise together.

Betta Sororities work for some. We tried it at my store. We added a group of females to a 10g. Ended up with dead and dying females.

I would do a heavily planted tank with some floating plants as well as some rocks and driftwood.

Adding Catalpa ( Indian Almond) leaves will help the Bettas also.

Ebay or The Planted Tank sales forum or maybe even this site.
