Fed up

This week 3 of my females in my sorority died. about 4 days apart from each other. First was Envy, one of my fav girls. She was sick a while back and i nursed her back to health and she was happier than ever. One day she was perfectly fine, the next day i come home shes laying face down in the substrate and the shrimp are gnawing on her..... a few days later i find my pretty new yellow girl crocked under the pagoda, she was fine then dead. Everyone seems fine in the tank, then i come home from visiting my parents place for the night and Violet one of my oldest girls was white as a ghost laying in the bottom..... Sun and Fluffy, my last two girls left are fine! They are warm, the temp is 80, i do water changes ever sat. I feed them and make sure they ALL get at least one pellet..... if not more. ughh. im about ready to tear down the sorority and build a shrimparium....

I'm so sorry about your girls dying. It's got to be very frustrating when you can't figure out what's going on.

Did you test your water and everything? Maybe you've got a problem with your levels?

I wouldn't throw in the towel. There has to be a reason. Can you take out the remaining females for a week or so and run comprehensive tests on your tank to see what is going on? Maybe do a 30% water change every day until you've got the proper water to house the fish?

I don't know. I'm pretty new to bettas, but not to having fish. There has to be something making them die. If it was me, I'd dump the tank, clean everything really well, and start over.
