sorry not sure what happened but i was trying to find post, don't remember where i saw it, that someone wrote about unknown disease which affect betta and they die within 24 hrs . If i will find it i will post it for you. I am curious myself. No one could figure out what it was and how to treat if because fish died fast. Sorry :)I just hope that your other bettas will not get infected ....Your water parameters are good looks like you do everything right. I do the same actually...
I just would be extra careful and watch them and if you think they have any symptoms make post or let me know i was talking to a few people on the forum that are very knowledgeable so we can ask them to help. So you can let you know if you will have problem and i will direct you to someone.
Do you have any fish medications at home just in case you need it? I like natural methods with aquarium and epsom salt but i think in this situation you need strong medications. I always have medications and salt at home as emergency kit.
Also be very careful if you ever put live plants in the tank. I am personally using home plants. But i read a lot of people on the forum wrote that plants can carry disease. So always quarantine plants for a few weeks in the water with NO conditioner. Some plants for example wisteria will die, and sword and java fern will live.
About tail bitter i have one of my betta bite his tail As soon as it grow back it bites it every about 3 -4 month. I don't use stress coat i just using Prime and i do 100% water changes. His tail heals pretty fast. But i think stress coat good idea, it replenishes his slime coat.
