    Just curious, how would a female betta do in a community tank? Are their certain fish that would cause problems? Thanks.

    same as a male, depends on their aggression level and how big the tank is with what is also put in the tank with them.

    I had a 30 gal with 4 females in it (And assorted other fish including 6 Panda Corys, a Bristle Nose Pleco, and some Zebra danios) The females all had their own territories and got really picky when the others strayed into their patches. 
     
    I wouldn't risk really flashy guppies with most female bettas, but if you wanted to go for something like platys you would probably be okay (Especially if the platy were of equal size or a little bigger than the bettas)
