Bettas can be really hit or miss - gotta keep in mind how they are kept prior to purchase, which can really weaken them.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta

Yeah. Mine always last a few weeks then poof. One day I wake up and they're dead. No discernable cause. Although one did die of cottonmouth that came in on a group of albino corydoras

Many years ago I experienced the same issue. Searching around the tank I discovered the body of the cory stuck inside a commercial tank ornament. Apparently when fish swim up into a blind passage they are unable to apply any reverse and died in the interior dead end passage. To solve this problem I carefully inspected all tank ornaments and filled all blind passages with poly fill or other inert material and secured it in place with some aquarium rated silicone sealer. So anytime I put any ornament into the tank including driftwood I carefully inspect for blind passageways and modify accordingly.
