Lace is Dead

Lace, my avatar fish- the most beautiful fish I've ever seen- dead when I came home from work today.
I'm losing one after the other in rapid succession, I don't know why.

4 bettas: Butch, 3-year-old violet male PK EE & 3 girls in a 30 gal sorority. I do not name the girls anymore! 1/2 of them die within a month.
30 gal: 9 Oto cats, 4 Ocellifer cats. Inverts: Cherry shrimp & 2 assasin snails.
10 gal.: Butch, his 5 oto cats, 3 assasin snails, and a few snails the assassins haven't caught.

Something is killing my fish 1 after the other. I tried treating, but after losing every one I isolated & medicated, I'm just letting them stay in the tank; they die more quickly that way, rather than being terrorized for a day or 2 more in a hospital tank.

Aw so sorry. It's always the favorites that go first, sadly. Sip lace.

Thank you.
Something got into my sorority (& males' tank by cross-contamination) that is wiping out all of my bettas. The catfish are fine.
I'm going to wait and see if the rest die b/f taking the whole tank down. Beats me if I'll get a betta again. I love them b/c they aren't schooling fish; they are all off on their own little agendas- sneaking up on a catfish, looking at snails, exploring the tank, begging for food... it makes them so much more endearing than other fish.

It sounds like "Wee" lived up to her name, as in "wee, this is fun"- until she hit the dry floor. Sometimes these fish are a headache & heartache.
