We have a female blue betta in a divided 5.5 with a matching male on the other side and we both think she would whoop his tailfins. She's killed neons, corys, otos and mystery snails. Our other 3 females are iffy, they can be pretty mean when they want to spawn. Otherwise, they are kittens. We keep them in a 3 section divided 20L.
