Spark is dead...

...my most recently aquired member of the sorority. She was the 1st bright yellow female I've seen at PetSmart. Although a VT, I snapped her up as a bright addition to the tank. She grew rapidly and was a healthy girl. I thought my troubles w/whatever betta disease I'm cursed with had run it's course- until I found her dead this AM.
I only have 2 female bettas- both imports, for what it's worth.

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.

Any ideas about how to proceed? The 2 girls look healthy, but then so did Spark. Shall I wait for these 2 to die? Then how do I rehab the tank? My ocellifer cats are fine, and I lose an oto cat every few months.

My available equipment is: 1 5 gal hex; 2 2.5 "betta bows", and 2 10 gallon tanks. All have heaters & lights. Right now I have a shrimp farm in the Hex, and Butch in a 10 gal. I'm thinking of distributing the fish between the tanks & doing a 100% tear-down of the 29 gallon.
