R.I.P Alien.
Tell me- what were your temperature? Did you wash everything and rinse well? Did you do a water change recently? Has any disinfectant on chemicals been near his tank? How long have you had him?
(sorry for the questions.)

The water was about 79 degrees and The day before he died I cleaned his tank and scrubbed it out.No chemicals have been near his tank and I only had for 3 weeks I think.*sob*

I'm really sorry. :( Even if his water was 79*F, without a heater, the temperature fluctuates and bettas need a constant temperature.

Well they can live 4-7 years. How long did you have him for? If they don't have a heater and are in constantly cold water and stressed, it can cut their life in half.
