I would have punched him in the face. No one messes with my fish. >:(
I'm really sorry for you loss though. :( You did the best and only thing you really could. You can't reverse poisoning, the only thing that could have been done is what you did. Placing the fish in clean water.
And again, I'm sorry for your loss.
I can't give advice about the sorority because I'm not familiar with them.

Oh, I'm sorry. :(

I'm not familiar with sororities but I think from all I've read here, 4 is the min. So I'd hold off until you can pick up another.

Usually betta females do well in groups of three or more, so they should be fine... Personally, I would try putting them back together in the original tank, and keep the vases handy, just in case they start fighting. Hope that helps!

It really depends on the fish. If they were already in together I wouldn't worry too much. I have a tank with just two female bettas in it right now and they swim along right next to each other without fighting or anything.

Adding a 4th "stranger" may cause them all to pick on just her,
But with betta's you can never be to sure, Just watch them closely if you only add 1 new girl.
