Can I put two different types of female betta fish together or must they be the same kind?

I am getting my sister betta fish and they will be female. She likes two different kinds and I want to get her both if I can. They will have plenty of room to swim around in. Can two different types of female bettas live in the same tank together somewhat peacefully?

I have heard 2 females together was fine as they are less likely to fight one another though.

It is not recommended that you do keep two female Betta's together but it is possible. People say not to as female Betta's can be just as dominant as the males, and will even kill over territory!But if you still want to then here's some tips when introducing them.It is best to introduce them into a neutral territory. So introduce them to the tank at the same time with no other fish, as a female Betta who has been in the tank for some time will view it as her territory, therefore wont take to the newcomer lightly.But if you wish to introduce another female Betta into the tank with one already in there, it is best to remove the first female, also try to rearrange the plants and decor of the tank whilst shes out.This helps to confuse the original female Betta into thinking its not her territory. And this should result in neither female Betta's owning any more territory than the other.
