I do not really have experience, but I think it has a lot to do with the stress related to breeding. Stress can weaken the immune system and make them especially vulnerable to illness. Also, bettas can sustain a lot of physical damage from breeding. Both females and males can get pretty badly beaten up during spawning. Some males get really depressed after being removed from the spawning tank as well. I have also heard of sudden heart attacks in rare cases.

I'm going to really have to think hard about breeding my pair then. #1)I've just spent over100 bucks on my pair between purchasing and shipping to buying them a 29 gallon tank #2)I'm not sure I'd like to have done all that to give one of them a heart attack esp since I'm not planning on Line Breeding them. I will take a few months to see how they take to eachother considering they will be housed together(Divided) Of course. Learning a lot love these topics
