Females can be pretty aggressive if not more than the males....what was Napleon or species of fish?
What size tank do you have them in?

My guess would be to keep her away from other fish. Just let her live alone, I guess. :P

I have a few females that must be kept alone due to extreme aggression toward anything that moves. The longer a betta is kept alone, the less they will tolerate tank mates.

Napleon was a male CT betta,
thats what i did i moved her to her own tank so she could not kill anymore of my fish
I have a 20 gallon tank i hav 2 guppies and a panda cory in it now with her in a net tank at the top of the tank

Oh my....you really shouldn't keep males and female Bettas together unless you plan to spawn.....its not uncommon for females to destroy the male or kill him....sorry for your loss....your female Betta was just doing what come natural or instinctive nature....kill or be killed......good that you have her QT-you may want to take her back to the pet shop...some females can be more aggressive than males and since they have shorter fins...they are faster.....

I only put her in for spawnning the guppies and cory were not in the tank with them when this happened, I really want to take her back because i can't even let her into the bigger tank because of her being so agressive,so i think ill try because i cant afford more killed fish

I would take her back if you dont have a separate tank for her. Please dont put males and females together in the future, no matter the reason :)
