You can not put 3-4 female bettas in it. A single female requires just as much room as a male. In a 5 gallon tank, you can have either one male or one female. In a tank 10 gallons or larger, you can give each female 2.5 gallons. I bred and imported bettas, and even though space got tight with 500+ fry growing out, I would never house that many in such a small space. Please do your research before blindly suggesting things.

As for a 5 gallon, not reptiles or amphibians can safely fit in it. Its the same for fish. Very few would be able to survive in a tank that size. I suggest some type of invertebrate! There are some amazing shrimp and crayfish out there. I suggest a pair of dwarf crayfish or some tiger shrimp. Oh, apple snails are also good pets and come in a wide variety of colors.

maybe some glass shrimp would be cool.
you could also do two african dwarf frogs in a 5 gal, they’re really cool pets and fun to watch.
