Keeping in mind that I do have hiding places for them all. But will she be aggressive?

She may be ok like I said before it all depends in the betta. Watch how she is in the lfs especially of they are in with other fish

Excellent, get some pics up if you can. Plus what's his name?? Just keep an eye on him for a few days just to monitor his aggression levels. Good luck!

His names Robert so far hes completely ignoring the others I chose him because he was in a tank with neon tetras and was minding his own business so I chose him as he seems non aggressive.

1.I have however noticed that he spends a lot of time at the bottom of the tank (by the substrate) And only comes up to eat is this normal?
2.he never flares so I can never take a good picture! How can I get him to flare?

Also I saw him with about 8 female bettas at the LFS so I was thinking if it would be possible to add 3 female bettas in my tank with him? Would he kill them (at the shop he ignored them)? Would he breed with them?

Considering he isn't aggressive would this be possible?

I really don't recommend keeping males and females together in the same tank... She will kill him...
And female betta sororities are sometimes difficult because of the possible aggression issues.
