Female bettas

I have recently acquired 2 new female betas, from a person that was going to throw them out. I put both in my 100gal. tank , it is planted so gives them lots of hiding spots. I was just wondering if they will get along. I don't know much about betas other than the males will fight.

it depends on the personality of the betta. some people have had luck with 5+ in a 20 long i think they will be fine in a 100 g planted

+1. It depends on there personality. But in general, females are a lot less aggressive than males. And 2 in a 100g planted should definitely be good.

Ok. So female betas are usually less aggressive then males? And they are ok with other community fish?

I have a 29 gallon high and i want to do a school of tiger barbs or tetras. I want to add two elephant ear female bettas. Will they get along with each other.? What tankmates can i keep with the bettas. ? One more question, can you explain brackish water to me. ?

tiger barbs will get too large and aggressive to house with bettas in a 29. one of the easiest ways to see if a betta will attack the other is put one in the tank and one in a bag or clear container and float it in the tank and see their reactions. always have a backup plan for if they dont get along
