Unhappy My first betta set I lost one

I bought 2 Veiltail betta females and the next day I noticed the one wasn't acting like I have seen most fish doing. So I called the pet store and the manager told me to just watch her and if she gets worse to bring her in so I went to bed and woke up the next day and she was nose first in the water and not moving. I was so upset that my first fish I ever owned died but I think that she was on the verge anyway of dying and the shock of the move just finished her off.

America (f, HM), Spirit (m, DBLT), Rescue (f, VT), Missile (m, HM), Purnurple (m, HMPK), Dragon (m, VT), platies, mollies, sorority tank of 21 females, AND lots of guppies.

Were they put in the same tank together? Females will fight for territory of kept in less than groups of 5 or more(or at least that is my experience.) I'm sorry for your loss! I know how it feels to lose a first pet.

Yes they were kept with each other but it most likely was shock of the move. I right now have 2 Betta Veiltail females in the same tank which is a 1.5 gallon tank and they are just fine. They both are very healthy females and not fighting at all. In the future I would like to breed one of not two of my Betta Veiltail females but that won't be for a while.

I'm sorry for your loss. I agree with aqua001. Two females in a 1.5 is a disaster waiting to happen. Eventually one female will dominate the other one and bully her to death.

I still recommend getting them their own houses, though. 2 females in a 1.5 gallon is just not going to work:(. If you were to breed, do TONS of research first. It is complicated. i've been researching since May of this year and I still don't get a lot of the stuff. I don't mean to sound rude at all, really. Just stating the facts.
