They are very beautiful!!

As a word of warning: I think I've seen those tanks before and there's something wrong with the gravel that pollutes the water. Is that gravel the stuff that came with it? That could be responsible for the death of one fish.

Oh, and often you can't see ammonia at all but it can be deadly to fish which is the reason that water that "looks" fine is not always fine at all. I'd try to upgrade the tanks to at least 2.5 gallons each, and until then do a water change at least every other day on the ones you have now. What temperature is the water? Bettas are tropical fish...

They can live in half gallon tanks for a little while, but they won't live nearly as long as they would in a larger tank. do you have a LARGE (20 gallon) breeding tank? Do you have tanks for 100 plus fry? Have you researched betta fry care, and breeding?

The tanks LOOK clean, but you're not the one living in and drinking that water. If your going to keep them in small tanks at least do a 50% water change every other day. Be sure to research the breeding heavily. As of now you don't have the right setup for that.
