Bettas all getting lethargic and dying?

Ok so one has immune problems, one I might have smooshed, I just found a skeleton, and one is just starting to act lethargic. she always lays in the same spot and doesnt even come up for food like the rest of the girls. should I be concerned? o bettas ever do this and survive? I am in ocean city so I cant give you updates.

She sounds sick, I would Isolate her if the others are healthy.. (I know it will ruin their pack order but its better then a bunch of dead betta)

I don't have enough details to tell you what is what but if she's not bloated then try AQ salt treatment for a few days(max of 10). 1tsp \1gal.

Please fill the sticky and add a picture when you can.
