Unhappy What did I do wrong?

Today my 1st betta died. I have had it for 7 1/2 monthes and he seemed to be doing fine until about a week ago when he started getting less active. Then about three days ago he stopped eating. Yesterday his color was badly faded. This morning he couldn't swim well and by 9:00 he was dead. I was just wondering what I did wrong. The only thing I can think of that could have done it was I put a Tetra 50watt heater in his 2.5 gal tank. The box said 2g-15g but maybe it stressed him out? I don't know... I just don't want this to happen again......

I am sorry for your loss. Unfortunately, when you bought you him you would have no idea of his age and sadly fish can die unexpectedly without any outward symptoms. Congratulations on giving him the best care though! I don't think it was anything you did wrong though.
