Most people don't intend on being mean. They're just concerned about the fish and may come across as harsh but they really only have the fish,s best interests in mind.

yeah, speaking of their best interests I have an idea someone told me might work, and I'm wondering if it would. They said that if you got a seperate filter, heater, and a tank divider, then the male and the female bettas wouldn't be sharing the water and it would wokr, is this true?

You don't need a separate heater and filter if you use a plastic screen with holes. you can make the divider yourself very cheaply!! There is a DIY in here somewhere with instructions. you need the plastic screen for crafting and 2 binder cover spines. I made one for my 75 gallon, took 2 full pieces and 4 spines.
The tank should be min 10 gallon tho... or bigger to give them each 3.3 gallons. Always try to give your fish the most space you can.
Good luck. Please don't leave!! We all make mistakes and we are all here to learn.

oh.... hmmmmm... we'll have to wait for a Betta expert to jump here. I could be totally wrong then. lol sorry. I only kept one pair ever together to actually allow them to mate. Unsuccessfully I might add.

Okay basically don't keep a male with females, if you want females (only) together atleast more than 2 because the aggression.
From my knowledge they don't explode, i had a female that had a hole in her stomach before, am not sure why that happens but it does
Please don't be rude to other users here, i know am no moderator or anything hugely important but am pretty known here. people learn from mistakes, so did i many times
Sorry for the lost of your female though.
BTW there is a way of keeping ONE male in a sorority, am not really known to it. but a user does do that here s/he is professional so thats why no one gives her/him issue's with it. Aslong as you know what your doing, and really full of knowledge of the aggression of betta's people wouldn't get worried

Hmm. I don't see the issue here. You are honestly the one who said "your wrong" there is no such thing as being wrong when the issue is a matter or opinion.

Lilyandquigly, when you say that someone said males and females can't live together in the same water, do you mean because of the pheromones in the water that could keep them erm, excited all the time?

You should probably check the disease/emergency forum and post about your fish's problem by filling out the form provided there. That way you can try and find out :)
