Some bettas don't like tankmates. I'm just guessing but he may not be too happy with the rasboras.

I'd give it a few days. Just let him get comfortable.

When I thought all was going well, last night I turned his lights off and noticed he started coming out and wiggling, well this morning woke up, come downstairs to feed him and the Rasboras and found him dead :'(

I tested my water again, no ammonia, no nitrite so know its not that. I highly doubt it was the Rasboras as they were his tank mates in the store and I had his heat at 79-80F.

So don't know what happened, feel sad and angry at myself, did I miss something about I didn't notice?

Update, took my dead betta back to the store and since my water was fine (took samples as proof) they put it down to high stress so gave me another male one.

So the new I got is a purple male, he's very lively and such a attitude, he's eaten straight away and very active and hasn't bothered his tank mates <3

So sorry for the loss of your first betta fish

I am so glad you found another new friend to take his place. Have you named your new betta fish? How about Prince (aka Prince as in "Purple Rain").

Let us know when he is settled and show us how you've set up his tank along with his other friends. Always keep up with your water testing parameters. We can't stress enough how important this is. I have the API Freshwater Master Kit which you can get at Petsmart or any other store near where you live. Keep swimming as Dory would say.

He's already settled in, seems to keep having a go at a live plant I ONLY just put in today, there's about 4 plants and he's obsessed with just one

I already have the API water test kit for a while, so all set :) and haven't thought of a name yet.
