ok well if you could get a test kit,that would be handy for you,
remove the bodies straight away,as they begin to rot down quick because of the warm
water,and it will cause trouble with the condition of the water.
perhaps to go back to the days when your tank was peacefull you need to return the
Angel fish ?

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

mystery solved.

I just looked over at my tank and my frog was hanging from the betta fish with the bettas tail in its mouth and he was grabbing him with his arms!

I would have not guessed the frog! I am guessing he is more nocturnal. That would explain the damage at night. Glad you caught him in the act!

Lol, thats funny in a sad way.
Sorry to hear that.
Btw, bettas CAN be with other fish as long as they don't have long tails, or are in big enough tank.
also depends mostly on the fishes temperament.
and i have seen thousands of bettas living with guppies and tetras as long as the tank is big enough

Things like this reminds me of why I have 6 aquariums set up at all times, lol. I hope you have removed the frog and put him in another home to avoid further damage/death to your other fish. For example, I had to move my black ghost knife the other night to a 20g that has a juv jag growing out becuase by BGK was nipping at the fins of my large black angel I just added. Fin nipping gets you move quickly at my house! The BGK will have to remain in the 20g until we reframe our 125g (in the next week or so) and move our other jag from the 120g to the 125g and then my BGK will go to the 120g because there is nothing in there that will eat him.

Long story short, the frog needs a new home whether it's in one of your aquariums or someone else's, either that or your other fish need a new home. Call me a softie, I don't believe in the survival of the fittest unless I know 100% sure that no one is going to get majorly injured and/or killed; I enjoy all of my fish and like them all to be alive and well every morning.

I prefer to have my bettas live alone because fish do attack each other and eat each other. I know this is just natural but I don't want something attacking and eating my bettas nor would I want my bettas attacking and eating other fish.
