On wednesday I got a female Betta at petsmart- she had stress stripes, brought her home & put her in a 1 gallon QT tank stays at room temp 72 degrees (temporary for QT, sorority is in a big heated)
Well on Friday I woke up and she was floating weirdly. She didt eat anybof the food I gave her since I got her and she floating for awhile, then swam to the bottom and died.
So I went to petsmart and got another female. I had a bad feeling at first, but I ignored it and got the last female left- one identical to the first and without a doubt from the same shipment. I brought her home & put her in a separate 1 G tank (the tank itself and everything in the same NEVER came in contact with previous fish) then I went to check on her and she was on the gravel, dead and her color had faded. She went from a light red to a mostly dark creamy color with red fins.
What could've been wrong with them? Was it illness/disease? Genetic?? Idk! They were both slightly bloated.
