Default Female bettas need a new home

I have 4 female bettas that are living in a 20 long right now that was supposed to be a shrimp tank. I originally had decided I was going to house them in my 50 community but quickly found that would not work due to feeding issues.

I am looking for someone to adopt them that will give them a good home. They do fine with each other but could be split up without any issue I'm sure.

They would not do well with other fish (they are not nippy with other species but they will eat any and all food they see, everyone else will starve and they will balloon up) and I would not trust them with any shrimp (I haven't tried but they like to put everything in their mouth, like small children.) They have MTS and a small Nerite in with them now without issue.

As with most bettas they are full of personality however this tank set up I have just wasn't designed for them and although I've made some adjustments I think they would be happier in a new home with someone that can give them more attention and where they can be located in a more active area of the house. I do weekly water changes and feed them New Life Spectrum betta food.

I will only allow them to go to an experienced fish keeper who knows the importance of filters, heaters, larger tanks, and proper cycling for bettas (and any other fish for that matter.) I may not have the perfect environment for them but I do not want them to end up in poor living conditions, I'd rather just keep them here where I know they will be safe.

If you are interested please feel free to ask any questions and if it gets serious I will be requesting pictures of their future home and will be asking questions myself as well.

I will not ship them, I don't have the supplies and will not risk losing them due to my inexperience with shipping living creatures. I am located in Woodburn, OR and would possibly be willing to deliver depending on distance, scheduling, and how I feel about you as a person...

And now on to the ladies. (These are older pictures of first day I got them, I'll be trying to get newer ones tonight after work)

Opal - veil tail, brought her home March 22, 2012. SHE IS A JUMPER!

Pearl - veil tail, brought her home March 22, 2012.

Violet (because she eats everyone's food and looks like Violet from Willy Wonka) & Scarlet - crown tails, brought home August 16, 2012. Hard to get a picture of them since the tank is so dark. Violet is the blue one, Scarlet the red one is case it wasn't obvious. Here is a video of these two when I first got them:
