    Nope! You have too many fish in there that will tear at the fins!
    It will fight with the gourami for the same territory.
    The TBs and rainbows will also bite at the fins.

    Well I thought of that but I thought Female bettas don't have fins any bigger than a dwarf gourami and my dawrf gouramis fins are fine. Plus I have enouhg tiger barbs that they would leave their tankmates alone.

    It could definitely vary. The T-barbs and gourami may ignore her, they may not. The gourami is probably the biggest factor in that tank. If that gourami doesn't want a friend up there, the female betta and you will learn that the hard way quick. If not, it'll be a great looking tank.

    I think you have a nice full active tank, why take a risk adding one little fish. Get a ten gallon kit and get 3-4 pretty girls.

    Well I have 7 females in my 60 gallon and I was just wondering if I was at petco and saw a really pretty female betta if i could add one to my 46 gallon. So if I see one I like I will get it but if not I wont.
